What exactly did Ronaldo do to get a straight red?

Juventus were attacking Valencia's goal from the left-wing when Ronaldo slipped into their penalty area, waiting for a cross.

When Valencia defender Jeison Murillo tried to block CR7, Ronaldo gave him a slight push, due to which Murillo fell down.

Ronaldo, then, touched his head and asked him to get up.

Seeing this, the assistant referee warned the referee, who showed Ronaldo the red.

United

Ronaldo's last visit to Manchester United

Ronaldo won his first UCL title with United in the 2007-08 season and went on to win four more with Real Madrid.

He last returned to Old Trafford in the 2012-13 season's UCL round of 16, scoring in both legs and taking Real Madrid to the quarters.

Ronaldo is loved by United fans and we will be witness to another special moment this season.
