See Cristiano Ronaldo’s Response After Being Shown A Red Card In Juventus Win Over Valencia
Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, insisted he did not do anything wrong, after he was sent off in their 2-0 win over Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Valencia head coach, Marcelino said Ronaldo protested his innocence after the game at the Mestalla.
Ronaldo was shown a straight red card, following an inconspicuous coming together with Jeison Murillo, in an off-the-ball incident.
Marcelino told reporters: “He was very upset, even crying, because he said he didn’t do anything wrong.
“I haven’t seen the play which ended up in the red card.”
Despite their numerical advantage, Valencia lost after Miralem Pjanic converted two penalties in either halves.
Dani Parejo also saw his penalty saved by Wojciech Szczesny in stoppage time.
“It’s obvious that the penalties have impacted us.
“The penalty just before half-time was a real blow, we then had to try and pull ourselves together.
“The other penalty was then a death sentence for us, conceding two goals to such an excellent team makes the task wholly difficult,” Marcelino added.
