Florentino Perez: 'Cristiano Ronaldo sale was for the best'

Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo could reportedly face an extended ban from Champions League football following his red card against Valencia on Wednesday night.

Portuguese star Ronaldo was left in tears after receiving a red card for clashing with defender Jeison Murillo in the 29th minute of Wednesday´s game which the Italian champions eventually won 2-0.

UEFA, Europe's football governing body, on Thursday stated that they have initiated a disciplinary case over Cristiano Ronaldo's controversial red card in the Champions League, and the case will be assessed on September 27, news agency AFP reported.

He is set to serve an automatic one-match suspension, which will rule him out of the home game against Young Boys on October 2.

While he admits that the incident could look frivolous on the first look, referees do not take it too kindly to players raising hands at their opponents and Ronaldo is likely to receive a more than a one-match ban for the red card.

AFP Sport understands, however, that an extension to the one-match ban is unlikely. "I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision", Allegri said.

Ronaldo, then, touched his head and asked him to get up.

"It is very disappointing, we nearly lost because of that and we will be without Ronaldo for the next (game)".

"It is very severe, I think that if you saw the images, you could see that it is incomprehensible", said the midfielder.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has sensationally admitted the club had no intention of selling Cristiano Ronaldo, but had to open the door for the superstar when he made clear his intentions to leave. Juventus were awarded with two penalties which they converted on, even though they played much of the game with 10 men due to Ronaldo being sent off.
