Real Madrid maestro Cristiano Ronaldo could face punishment for his celebration after scoring in Sunday’s El Clasico at the Nou Camp.
The forward, regarded by many as in the top two best footballers in the world, looked to make a motion toward Barcelona fans, urging them to calm down after his first half equaliser.
Spanish league president Javier Tebas says they will be investigating the incident in a bid to clamp down on all provocative actions. The investigation is part of a policy brought in following the death of a Deportivo fan after fighting before a league match in November.
Tebas said, “We have to be careful with provocative gestures by a player or conduct that could incite violence among spectators.
“It must be sanctioned, from a fine up to a suspension. We will look into it.”
Ronaldo left the match with egg on his face following the controversial celebration though, as his side went on to lose 2-1 against Barcelona, following a second half strike from Luis Suarez.
