Cristiano Ronaldo was shown a straight red card in Juventus’ Champions League clash with Valencia

The Portugal international was shown a straight red card for the incident in the 29th minute of the group game

Cristiano Ronaldo was shown a straight red card in Juventus’ Champions League clash with Valencia on Wednesday.

It was the Portugal international’s first European match for the Italian giants following his £105million summer move from Real Madrid.

All eyes were on Ronaldo to see how he’d perform on the biggest stage in football, given the fact he’s won the competition five times previously.

But Ronaldo’s night will be remembered for all the wrong reasons after he was sent off in just the 29th minute for a coming together with Jeison Murillo.

It wasn’t clear what had happened at first as the incident occurred off the ball.

There was a slight coming together between the two players, but Ronaldo didn’t appear to lash out at his rival with his hand or head.

He did however appear to pull the hair of Murillo, which was spotted by the linesman.

The official gestured to the referee to end Ronaldo’s night early, and the Portugal international was forced to leave the pitch in tears.

Manchester City Vs Chelsea: Dunne Calls Morata A Disgrace

“Former Manchester City captain, Richard Dunne, has described Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata as a disgrace following the Spaniard’s performance during the Blues’ 2-0 loss in the Community Shield on Sunday.

Argentine forward, Sergio Aguero scored twice to give Pep Guardiola’s side the victory at Wembley.

Morata endured a difficult afternoon at Wembley, with very little service amid City’s fine form.

Dunne noted that new Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has a real issue on his hands with the forward.

“City were outstanding, I think for Chelsea it’s really worrying,” Dunne told BT Sport 1.

“I know the manager’s only had two weeks, but there were some players in that team that looked like they didn’t want to be there. Or they weren’t fit enough.

“I think you can change the tactics or make the team work harder, but actual individuals? I’m talking specifically about Morata.

“Morata was a disgrace up front, he was awful. They’ll have to spend an awful lot of money over the next week.””

“We appreciate their enthusiasm, borne out of desire to garner support for an administration that is actuated by nothing else, other than service for motherland, but we hereby appeal for patience, so that the game can be played according to the rules.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission has a timetable for political campaigns, and we urge committed supporters round the country (and beyond) to be mindful of such.

“There will be ample time ahead to trumpet the good works of the Buhari administration, and solicit re-election, all for the good of our country and her people.

“While a chronicle of the achievements of the administration is in order now, outright canvasing may amount to jumping the gun. We are an administration committed to due process and scrupulous respect for rules, law and order.

“We appreciate our massive supporters nationwide, and urge them to exercise restraint till the race commences officially as stipulated by law.”
