Manchester United opens the new season of the Champions League with a visit to Bern, Switzerland against the Young Boys. Although their newest signing and returning legend Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for them, United eventually lost the match 2-1. But the drama began even before Young Boys made for shocking football news – Ronaldo hit a security guard during warm-up.
As the Manchester United squad warmed up before the big opener game in Group F, one security guard was injured.
A stray, but strong, ball, hit her and, seemingly, it was a shot by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo, who returned to United after 12 years this summer, thus made an inaccurate but strong shot while warming up.
The Portuguese’s practice ball hit the security guard, who immediately fell to the floor in pain.
Other security guards ran up to her, and Ronaldo himself immediately approached her to check that she was alright.
Football News – Ronaldo Hit a Security Guard During Warm-up
To sum it up, Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo knocked a steward out with a wayward shot prior to the Champions League group stage opener against Young Boys away at Bern in Switzerland.
The ball hit this woman, a security guard, on the sidelines and its force on impact induced her to fall.
And after Ronaldo personally made sure she was okay, he apologized with a nice gesture too, when the match ended.
The steward was gifted the Portuguese’s legendary number seven jersey, A Bola reports.
She thus went home with a happier story that evening than United, who failed to gain any points last night.
