Cristiano Ronaldo bought EVERY Juventus player an iMac to apologise for red card in 2018 Champions League clash against Valencia

Cristiano Ronaldo once bought the entire Juventus squad iMacs after he was dismissed on his Champions League debut for the Old Lady in 2018.

The Portugal superstar was reduced to tears after being shown a red card for pulling the hair of Valencia defender Jeison Murillo in their group stage encounter.

Juve’s manager at the time, Massimiliano Allegri, had a rule that any misdemeanour from a player would result in them having to buy their teammates a gift as an apology.

And despite protesting his punishment for months, Ronaldo eventually succumbed to his punishment and bought all of his teammates the Apple computers, as revealed by his teammate Wojciech Szczesny.

Szczesny told Polish talk show Prosto w Szczene: “Yes, we all have an iMac.

“It took a very long time because he couldn’t process that red card and insisted high and low that he was not doing anything wrong.

“It took him a bit, about two months of arguing, but we all have received an iMac.”

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny revealed that he had also fallen foul of Allegri’s rule after he was late for training.

He explained: “I thought it was Tuesday, but it turned out to be Wednesday that day.

“Allegri called me and said everyone was already there. When I arrived half an hour late on the training field, everyone said: ‘oh, we’re getting presents!’ I ended up buying headphones for the boys.”

Allegri departed at the end of that campaign and was replaced by Maurizio Sarri at the Allianz Stadium in June 2019.
