"We're not women, we're playing football", Can said after Wednesday's game, leading to accusations of sexism and calls for a ban on social media.
Cristiano Ronaldo is consoled by teammate Federico Bernardeschi after receiving a red card during the Champions League, group H soccer match between Valencia and Juventus. The forward moved to Turin this summer after having spent 9 successful seasons with Real Madrid.
Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus has raised expectations of a first Champions League title since 1996, with share prices peaking at a record 1.8046 euros on the stock market Thursday before closing at 1.581 euros.
Maybe Juventus won't appeal Cristiano Ronaldo's red card after all. Ronaldo was seen protesting against a dive by Murillo and he put his hand on the Colombian defender's head.
When shown footage by DAZN, Can said: "That's supposed to be a red?" Most of the viewers felt that it was a harsh decision and didn't warrant even a yellow card.
He made a sexist remark while criticising the referee's decision to send off Ronaldo.
He is set to serve an automatic one-match suspension, which will rule him out of the home game against Young Boys on October 2. The reported punishment means Ronaldo will miss Juventus' home game against Young Boys on October 2 but will be available to face former club Manchester United on October 23 at Old Trafford. "I'll only say that in this sort of occasion VAR would help, It's disappointing because now we'll lose him for a few games and instead if there had been VAR it would have been seen that it wasn't a sending-off offense", Allegri said.
