Ronaldo: I know that I made a mistake

07 December 2009

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has apologised to his teammates following his sending off against Almeria at the weekend. The Manchester United legend was issued two yellow cards during their 4-2 La Liga win, firstly for removing his shirt following his goal celebration, and secondly for kicking Almeria’s Juanma Ortiz. The former Premier League star also missed a penalty during the match. 

Ronaldo told AS: “Taking off my shirt was an instinctive reaction.”

“I know that I made a mistake but I'm human. I didn't want to do it.”

“These are things that happen in football and I hope to learn from them. I've apologised to my team-mates.”
