Mum Plans To Take Legal Action Against Ronaldo After Smashing Son’s Phone

Mum Plans To Take Legal Action Against Ronaldo After Smashing Son’s Phone

A mum is planning on taking legal action against Manchester United Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo after he smashed her teen son’s phone on the ground, the Sun reports.

Sarah Kelly, 37, spoke out after Ronaldo accepted a caution for an incident at Goodison Park last season.

Ronaldo appeared to slap Jacob Harding’s hand as he left the pitch after United were beaten by Everton.

The former Real Madrid star later apologised to the 14-year-old, who has autism.

Earlier this month, the Portuguese star was interviewed by police under caution in relation to an alleged assault and criminal damage.

Merseyside Police later confirmed: “The matter has been dealt with by way of conditional caution. The matter has now concluded.”

But Sarah says she feels cheated – and claims she’s planning on taking legal action against Ronaldo, the Mirror reports.

“I want to see justice because there hasn’t been any,” she told the paper.

Sarah says she was contacted by the player by telephone in the days after the incident but claims she was left “shaking and crying” because of his attitude.

Ronaldo allegedly told her he hadn’t “kicked or punched anybody” during the chat.

“I was raging and my heart was pumping,” she said.

It is understood that Ronaldo has agreed to compensate Jacob and his mum.

Both Sarah and Everton fan Jacob have also been targeted by trolls after a clip of the incident went viral.

“It was disgusting. My boy has a heart of gold,” she said.

“I’m scared to leave the house, always looking over my shoulder.”

Man Utd bosses confirmed they won’t be taking action back in April.

Chiefs are believed to be happy with the ace’s apology.

In a post online, Ronaldo said: “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.”

He had been visibly angry as he made his way off the turf following the Red Devils’ dismal loss at the hands of struggling Everton.
