EPL: Moment angry Ronaldo smashes supporter’s phone after loss to Everton; tenders apology thereafter [Video]

Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo allowed his emotions get the better of him on Saturday following his team’s 1-0 defeat to Everton.

Footage on social media appeared to show the Portugese star clashing with a teenager (an Everton supporter) as he was heading for the tunnel at Goodison Park.

He visibly smashed the young boy’s phone, knocking it off his hands: an action that has widely been condemned by pundits.

Amid the backlash, the five times Ballon d’Or winner tendered a subtle apology on Instagram.

He wrote: “It’s never easy to deal with emotions in difficult moments such as the one we are facing.

“Nevertheless, we always have to be respectful, patient and set the example for all the youngsters who love the beautiful game.

“I would like to apologise for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair-play and sportsmanship.”
