Manchester United charged by Uefa for Cristiano Ronaldo pitch invaders against Juventus

Manchester United have been charged by Uefa after three supporters invaded the pitch during their Champions League clash with Juventus on Tuesday night.

The supporters all attempted to reach Cristiano Ronaldo, the Juventus forward returning to Old Trafford having played for United between 2003 and 2009.

Uefa charged the club for “field invasion” on Wednesday afternoon. The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 22 November – the week before they host their final Group H match against Young Boys.

A United spokesperson told Press Association Sport: “We will be responding to the Uefa charge and we are reviewing our pitchside security protocols in the light of the pitch incursions at last night’s game.”

United have avoided punishment for their late arrival at Old Trafford, and for the kick-off being two minutes 10 seconds behind schedule.
