Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed by the mother of the autistic Everton supporter whose phone he broke at Goodison Park last season, for which he was charged by the FA.
Sarah, the teenager’s mum, told Liverpool Echo: “Let’s hope he finally gets the right punishment. He can’t keep getting away with it. His behavior is unacceptable.
“I’m being hounded by people saying I’m dragging it up again but I didn’t know anything about it. He should have been dealt with six months ago. My son talks about what happened to him every day. He still hasn’t had his phone back.”
She was also annoyed that the Merseyside Police offered to pay for the broken phone and his attempt to apologizing, adding: “He should have paid for that. He’s the one who caused all this. It baffles me – he can assault a child and carry on as normal. How can he sleep at night knowing the distress he has caused to a young fan?
“He offered us to meet him and said he was sorry but said he had done nothing wrong. That’s not an apology, that’s an insult.”
Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to make a public comment on the charge from the FA or respond to the supporter.
