Manchester United are investigating an incident in which Cristiano Ronaldo allegedly smashed a supporter’s phone after the 1-0 Premier League loss to Everton on Saturday.
Footage shared on social media showed Ronaldo leaving the Goodison Park pitch and appearing to slam a mobile phone out of a fan’s hand and onto the ground after being verbally abused.

United told ESPN they were investigating the incident but stressed it was unclear or intentional what happened.
Ronaldo, United’s top scorer this season, has returned to the United squad after missing last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City through illness.
However, he was unable to inspire the team to victory against relegation-threatened Everton.
