The Argentine tactician escaped the ban after his controversial celebration in the 1st leg game, but finally Uefa fined him with 20K euros and also asked him to publicly apologize.
OFFICIEL ! 🚨Pour son geste contre la Juventus, l’UEFA met une amende de 20.000€ à Diego Simeone. Notre coach argentin sera bel et bien sur le banc de l’Atlético à Turin. #Aúpaatleti 🔴⚪ pic.twitter.com/8HOSsbEWMf— Atlético De Madrid 🇨🇵 (@AtletiFrancia) 7 March 2019
However, the UCL always put people in his place and in Turin Diego Simeone received the worst punishment he could have imagined.
Cristiano Ronaldo has done it again in a Knockout Stage and again vs Atletico… and scored an impressive hat-trick to turn the tie and send Juventus to the quarterfinals.
Two magisterial header goals and a perfectly placed penalty… And guess how he celebrated the winning goal!
It would surely be discussed by Uefa officials if this action deserves a punishment or not but… He was celebrating, wasn’t he?
