Man Utd 'baffled' as FA hand Ronaldo deadline to respond to charge over Everton phone incident

Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has been handed an October 10th deadline to respond to his FA charge for smashing a boy's phone to the ground.

Ronaldo was charged earlier this month following an incident after the Red Devils were beaten by Everton on April 9.

United have been left "baffled", according to the Manchester Evening News, as the incident was nearly six months ago and the police have concluded their investigation.

Ronaldo apologised to the 14-year-old but was interviewed by police under caution in relation to an alleged assault and criminal damage last month.

He was then charged by the FA last week, and has now been given a deadline to respond to the charge.
