Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for one match and fined by UEFA for making a gesture at Benfica fans.
Ronaldo was charged with misconduct following the incident in the Champions League in the Stadium of Light on December 7 when he raised his middle finger to home fans.
The Portuguese winger has been fined €6,430 and suspended from one UEFA club competition match. He has until Thursday to appeal.
Ronaldo, a former Sporting Lisbon player, was booed by Benfica fans throughout the whole match, which United lost 2-1 and were eliminated from the competition.
After the game, Ronaldo said the abuse he suffered was over the top.
“There was nothing to justify the way the crowd treated me,” he said.
