Manchester United Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed with a Football Association charge after he was filmed snatching a mobile phone out of the hands of a young Everton fan at Goodison Park last season.

A video clip captured Ronaldo smashing the phone to the floor as he headed down the tunnel at Goodison on April 9, 2022, after Everton had beaten United 1-0.
