Cristiano Ronaldo gives shirt to steward he hit with wayward shot

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.

After she went down to receive medical attention, Ronaldo went over to check she was okay.

At full-time Ronaldo gave her his match jersey and she posed for photos, and even put it on after Ronaldo’s generous gesture.
