Ronaldo Set For Old Trafford Return After UEFA Decide Length Of Ban
Cristiano Ronaldo has only been giving a one-match ban following his red card against Valencia in the Champions League.
The ban means the Juventus forward will only miss the Old Lady's fixture at home against Young Boys next Tuesday and not the away trip to his old stomping ground later next month.
Ronaldo had been sent off following an altercation with Valencia's Jeison Murillo where he appeared to pull the defender's hair.
The forward had never been shown a red card in his 15 years playing in the Champions League.
After a meeting earlier today, the UEFA disciplinary panel revealed that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner would only be charged with the automatic one game suspension and no further action.
"The CEDB has decided to suspend the Juventus Football Club player Cristiano Ronaldo for one (1) UEFA competition match which he would be otherwise eligible," read a UEFA statement.
The 33-year-old signed for United in 2003 before leaving for Real Madrid in 2009, scoring 118 goals in 292 games.
Ronaldo scored at Old Trafford for Madrid in the Champions League back in 2013, we couldn't get odds on Ronaldo finding the back of the net next month, but, we think it's going to happen!
