Cristiano Ronaldo is facing disciplinary action for his celebration after one of the three goals he scored in last week’s 3-2 aggregate win, over Atlético Madrid in the Champions League.

The 34-year-old forward has become the subject of a disciplinary investigation by European football’s governing body.

Ronaldo made a similar gesture to Atlético coach Diego Simeone, who celebrated his team’s opening goal in the first leg by turning to the crowd and putting his hands on his trousers.

Simeone was fined €20,000 for the incident but escaped a touchline ban for the return match.

A statement from the UEFA site: “Following a disciplinary investigation conducted by a UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector, in accordance with the Article 55 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the Champions League round of 16 match between Juventus and Atlético Madrid,”played on 12 March in Italy.

Charges against Juventus Football Club:

– Improper conduct of player Cristiano Ronaldo – Art. 11 (2) (b) and Art. 11 (2) (d) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations

The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will deal with this case at its next meeting on 21st  March.
