Aleksandar Mitrovic could get a Cristiano Ronaldo-esque boycott for pushing the referee against Manchester united

Aleksandar Mitrovic, who was born on September 16, 1994, is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Fulham, a Premier League club, and the Serbian national team. He also plays for the Serbian national team.

Mitrovic scored in a 3–0 away victory at Crystal Palace before missing a penalty kick in the 96th minute in a 2–1 victory over Southampton following the World Cup break.

He finished 2022 with 31 goals in 35 games across the EFL Championship and Premier League. In 2023, he started the same way, scoring the only goal in a 1–0 away win at Leicester to help Fulham win the Premier League for the first time since 2009. He missed the Cottagers’ game against Chelsea later that month because of his fifth yellow card for a second-half foul on Harvey Barnes.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, a Fulham striker, may receive a punishment that is analogous to that which former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo received in 2017. During the Red Devils’ 3-1 FA Cup loss to the Serbs on Sunday (March 19), the Serb was shown a red card for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh.

In a frantic match at Old Trafford, the Cottagers were eliminated from the FA Cup quarterfinals. Kavanagh gave Mitrovic, Willian, and Fulham manager Marco Silva red cards. Due to the fact that Mitrovic aggressively shoved the referee while protesting Willian’s dismissal, the length of Mitrovic’s suspension has been debated.

The Serbian singer may face a lengthy suspension, as Cristiano Ronaldo received in 2017. The Portuguese legend then made an appearance at Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey semifinal against Barcelona with 24 minutes remaining. He received a penalty for celebrating by taking off his shirt after scoring a goal.

Ronaldo received a second yellow card

After that, Ronaldo received a second yellow card for attempting to win a penalty by diving. He was given the go-ahead by referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea, but the former Los Blancos attacker was furious. Before leaving the Camp Nou pitch, he gave the Spanish official a push. His initial one-game suspension was increased to five games, and he was fined €3,805 for the incident.

Marcus Rashford surpasses Cristiano Ronaldo’s European total for Manchester United. There was a lot of discussion about how Manchester United would replace Ronaldo. The Portuguese left the club last November by commonly consenting to end his agreement.

During his first season at Old Trafford in 2021-22, he scored 24 goals in 38 games for the Red Devils. Rashford, on the other hand, has fully developed into the primary outlet for Erik ten Hag’s team.

The English striker has scored 27 goals in 44 games across all competitions, surpassing Ronaldo’s 21-22 total. He also scored more goals in a European competition this week than his former teammate.

In the Europa League round of 16, Rashford scored a spectacular goal in a 1-0 (5-1 aggregate) victory over Real Betis. He did it with style, surpassing Ronaldo’s record of 25 goals for United in Europe. The English forward crushed home from the edge of the crate to seal Manchester Joined’s position in the quarterfinals.

Earlier this season, Ronaldo participated for the first time in his career in the Europa League. In the European competition, he scored two of the three goals he scored during his disappointing season with Manchester United.
