The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester could have negative consequences for the Portuguese ace, after he smashed the cell phone of an autistic boy who wanted to take a photo of him, at the end of the match lost by his Manchester United 1-0 against Everton in Liverpool.
Manchester United will not punish Cristiano Ronaldo after the episode of nervousness, with the video that has been around the web. According to Sun Manchester United they considered the apology made on its social channels by CR7 sufficient, but the Merseyside police are also investigating the matter, after the boy's mother publicly declared that her son, autistic, was attacked by the Portuguese and suffered a bruise on his hand.
Manchester United are allegedly cooperating with the police regarding the investigation.

A spokesperson for Merseyside Police told the ECHO: "We can confirm that we are liaising with Manchester United Football Club and Everton FC following reports of an alleged assault at the Everton v Manchester United soccer match at Goodison Park.
As players were leaving the pitch at 2.30pm it was reported that a boy was assaulted by one of the away team as they left the pitch. Inquiries are underway and officers are currently working with Everton Football club to review CCTV footage and are carrying out extensive witness inquiries to establish if an offense has taken place.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police Contact center quoting reference number 228 of 9 April 2022. " We recall the boy's mother, Sarah Kelly, said to Liverpool Echo, that son Jacob was filming the footballers as they walked back into the locker room and that he had dropped the phone as CR7 pulled down his socks showing off a bleeding leg.
At that moment the Portuguese, who was leaving the field in a rage after the defeat, hit hard on the boy's hand making the cell phone crash to the ground: "I was crying, Jacob was completely in shock."
