Former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged by European football governing body, UEFA, after his cojones celebration against Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The Portuguese national team skipper could be in trouble with UEFA due to the manner of his celebration against Atletico Madrid.

The 34-year-old is in danger of missing the Champions League quarterfinals.

Juventus have been drawn against Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam in the last eight of the competition.

Ronaldo has had a very good campaign for Italian Serie A giants Juventus in what’s his first season in Italy.

He was the star man as Juventus overturned a first-leg deficit to beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 on aggregate in their last 16 tie.

Juventus had lost the first leg 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano courtesy second-half goals from Atletico Madrid defenders Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin.

Ronaldo showed why Juventus paid at least €100m to secure his transfer from Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid last summer with a hattrick against Atletico Madrid.

The 34-year-old scored the goals that gave the Old Lady a 3-0 win in the second leg.

He has now scored 24 goals in all competitions for Juventus since his transfer from Real Madrid.
