Ronaldo’s sister calls for justice

Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister, Katia Aveiro, has come out in defence of the Juventus forward after his red card in the 2-0 win against Valencia on Wednesday, reports Espn FC.

Ronaldo was dismissed on his Champions League debut for Juve after a clash with Jeison Murillo was spotted by the assistant referee and communicated to German referee Felix Brych, who drew a red card from his top pocket. She wrote on Instagram: “A football disgrace...justice will be done...they want to destroy my brother, but God never sleeps...disgraceful.”

Aveiro posted further images of the incident on her Instagram story with similar captions. It was Ronaldo’s first red card in 154 Champions League games, and the decision means he could miss a return to Old Trafford when Juventus play Manchester United next month if he gets at least a two-match ban.
