What Pavel Nedved Did At Half-Time When Cristiano Ronaldo Got Sent Off

What Pavel Nedved Did At Half-Time When Cristiano Ronaldo Got Sent Off

Pavel Nedved was furious with match referee Felix Brych after he sent off Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo's Juventus Champions League debut lasted a mere 29 minutes versus Valencia. He received a straight red card for appearing to pull Jeison Murillo's hair.

Juventus' vice-president Nedved was not happy at all with the referee's decision.

So much so, he attempted to confront the German official at half-time.

According to reports from Spanish outlet Marca via Football Italia, Nedved and two other board members tried to confront Brych. But he managed to avoid Juventus' protestations after making his way into the dressing room.

Ronaldo's controversial red card was the talk of the game, and it was also the 33-year-old's first red card in a Champions League fixture.

Brych did, though, award the Serie A outfit with two penalties after sending Ronaldo off. Miralem Pjanić converted both spot-kicks to hand his side all three points, with Wojciech Szczesny saving a penalty from Daniel Parejo in stoppage time.

Meanwhile, Juventus revert back to their league campaign this weekend, and resume their Champions League venture versus Young Boys in a few weeks without Ronaldo's services.

Though he could still feature for Juventus when they travel to Old Trafford in October.
