Mother of Everton fan sends message to Man Utd for Ronaldo’s ‘lack of apology’ after phone slapping incident

Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed by the mother of the young Everton supporter who had his phone smashed after United’s game against the Toffees.

Fan footage showed Ronaldo swiping at someone’s phone as the teams walked off the tunnel after the final whistle.

The young supporter’s mother eventually went onto social media to confirm it was her child’s phone that was smashed to bits by Ronaldo’s actions.

“The apology or lack of apology was what angered me even more,” Sarah Kelly told The Telegraph.

“I thought, ‘How rude – you are telling everybody you have apologised and you haven’t’. OK, you have put it out to social media but… you should be apologising to my son.

He [Ronaldo] had several hours to ponder on it. He should have found out our contact details… been private, said he had spoken to us and released something. I would have been happy with that.

“I was quite shocked United hadn’t put a statement out asking us to get in touch, just something a bit heartfelt, rather than Ronaldo saying the supporter can come to me.

“That comes across really, really rude to me. Why would we, as Everton fans, go to United? He put, ‘this supporter’. It doesn’t state if he was an Everton supporter or a United supporter. It’s just a very, very weak apology in my opinion.

“It was our first time [together at football]. Jacob is obsessed with Everton and football. It’s his passion. It just took a complete shine off the game, the win, the experience. I’m not even thinking of the day I had with him, the nice time before the incident. I’m just thinking of the last five seconds. It has completely spoilt it. It’s shocking.

“I did ask him: ‘Would you like to go? Ronaldo said we could go to United’. He said, ‘No, mum, I would never want to see him again’. That’s upsetting because Ronaldo was one of the reasons he wanted to go to the United game.”
