As this video shows, Crissy Ronaldo blatantly cheated to win a penalty against Derby County on Saturday â€“Â let’s ignore the fact he got up and took the penalty, when a selfish player would have allowed Carlos Tevez the chance to get a well-deserved hat-trick; the fact is, he conned the ref. All well and good in such a one-sided game, you might say, but that’s not the point. Imagine the furore if it had happened against Arsenal or Chelsea.
Ronaldo was already starting his theatrical dive before he slyly left his leg in on Tyrone Mears â€“ it’s one of the winker’s less savoury skills and yet I’ve not really seen much fall-out from the incident. Alex Ferguson should give him the hairdryer treatment, but instead I imagine he’ll turn a blind eye.
How would you stop Ronaldo â€“ or any player â€“ getting away with this?
