The Juventus superstar will receive only a one-game UEFA Champions League ban for the red card he received Wednesday in his team's win over Valencia, according to The Guardian's Jamie Jackson.

The former Man United forward was handed his marching orders in the first half at the Mestalla after he attempted to pick up defender Jeison Murillo by his hair in the box. "We´re not women, let´s play football".

The German apologised on Thursday for causing any offence but Smith believes the midfielder's comments on the women's game were misplaced.

However, the Mirror reports that UEFA sources have intimated there will be no additional punishment for Ronaldo and he will only serve a one-game suspension before returning for the emotional visit to Old Trafford on October 23.

My colleague Cork Gaines put an Echo Dot in his vehicle for months and called it "the best infotainment system we've ever used". The hockey puck-shaped Dot is one of Amazon's best-selling devices, and with 70% better sound it's going after audiophiles.

Ronaldo burst into tears following his red card. First, it took him a lot of matches to be able to score his first goal for the club.

"Everyone who knows me knows about my respect for women".

"The comments made were never focused on nor meant to degrade women, women's football or equality in any form", added the 24-year-old, who joined Juventus from Liverpool in the summer. "It was very harsh, I think if you saw the replays, you could see it's an incomprehensible decision", Matuidi said.

After discussing the incident with his assistant referee, Brych showed a straight red card to Ronaldo which prompted questions from all over the world.

He has lined up against United twice since his move to the Bernabeu, scoring in both games as Real Madrid knocked Sir Alex Ferguson's side out of the Champions League in 2013.
