Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with improper conduct by Uefa for a goal celebration in the win over Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.
The 34-year-old appeared to mimic Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who turned to fans and grabbed his crotch during his side’s 2-0 first-leg victory. Ronaldo made the gesture after his third goal of his hat-trick in the return leg as Juventus won 3-0.
Uefa will rule on the case on 21 March. Simeone was fined 20,000 euros (£17,000) for his celebration. Juventus take on Dutch club Ajax in the Champions League quarter-finals over two legs, on April 10 in Amsterdam and April 16 in Turin.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri has said he is confident Ronaldo will not be fined or suspended.
