EA Sports Produced A Very Cheeky Comment In Response To Cristiano Ronaldo's Red

EA Sports Produced A Very Cheeky Comment In Response To Cristiano Ronaldo's Red

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus and it led to EA Sports responding in bizarre fashion.

The five-time Ballon d'Or returned to Spain for the clash with Valencia and was looking to build on his performance at the weekend, where he got off the mark with a brace against Sassuolo.

However, just thirty minutes into the game at the Mestalla, Ronaldo was shown a very controversial red for a coming together with the Spanish side's centre back Jeison Murillo. A soft dismissal if ever you saw one.

It was the 33-year old's first red card in the competition and he was visibly distraught at the decision as he left the pitch.

And weirdly, EA Sports seemingly trolled the former Real Madrid and Manchester United man on their Instagram. With him being their cover star for the second year on the trot, Ronaldo and his son Cristiano Jr got their hands on the very first copy of FIFA 19.

On his Instagram, CR7 shared a snap of him and his mini-me with the game and EA Sports reposted it. All was well.

But then, they commented the following on the post: "More time to play #FIFA 19 now" with a carefully positioned emoji - a clear response to Ronaldo being shown red.

At first one might think it's fake as EA wouldn't do such a thing to mock one of the faces of their brand, but it's genuinely legitimate. Something tells us EA Sports will be getting a call from Ronaldo's team...

The red card means that Ronaldo will miss the game against Young Boys next time out but he could potentially be suspended for the two fixtures against former side Manchester United if the ban gets extended.
