Cristiano Ronaldo gave his shirt from Manchester United’s Champions League opener to the steward he had hit on the head with a wayward shot during the warm-up.
Ronaldo was also on target against Young Boys as he scored the game’s opening goal to give Manchester United a 1-0 lead. However, they were then reduced to 10-men before throwing it away and losing the match 2-1 in stoppage-time.
Rio Ferdinand criticised CR7 for his touchline antics after being substituted as he stood alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to give the team instructions.
During the build-up to the match in Switzerland, United’s forward players were practicing their shooting when one of Ronaldo’s shots sailed over the bar and struck a steward – seemingly to the head.
