Fans think they know what Federico Bernardeschi told Cristiano Ronaldo after red card v Valencia

Once the tears have dried up, Cristiano Ronaldo can breathe a sigh of relief.

His one-match ban after receiving a red card against Valencia on Tuesday won’t be extended, according to reports.

The Juventus forward’s first appearance in the Champions League for the Old Lady lasted just 29 minutes before he was shown his marching orders.

Ronaldo clashed with Jeison Murillo and appeared to grab the Valencia defender’s hair.

Referee Felix Brych consulted his assistant behind the goal before sending Ronaldo off.

It prompted a remarkable response from the Portuguese star. He dropped to the floor and burst into tears.

He will miss Juventus’ match against Young Boys but UEFA don’t plan to extend his ban, according to The Guardian, meaning he will be available to play against Manchester United on October 23.

Bernardeschi’s message

Ronaldo could be seen shouting towards the sideline: ‘No he hecho nada’, which translates to: ‘I did nothing’.

And football fans have now worked out what Federico Bernardeschi, positioned just behind Ronaldo, said to his teammate following his red.

Bernardeschi appears to say: ‘Sei numero uno’, which means ‘you’re number one’.

It’s clear that Ronaldo retains the support of his teammates.

Midfielder Miralem Pjanic, whose brace handed Juventus a 2-0 win at the Mestalla, called Brych’s decision to send the 33-year-old off “absurd”.

“Football is a strange game,” Pjanic said, per Goal. “We could have been 4-0 up after the opening period, then came that absurd sending off.”

It’s a setback for Ronaldo after he’d kickstarted his Juventus career with a brace against Sassuolo.

Ronaldo will discover his fate when UEFA’s Competition Committee meet on September 27.

Early signs that he will be able to make an emotional return to Manchester United are promising, though.

That’s probably bad news for Jose Mourinho and the Red Devils.

No teams wants to face Cristiano Ronaldo when he’s angry.
