Juventus midfielder Emre Can is criticised for 'sexist' comments he made following teammate Cristiano Ronaldo's dismissal against Valencia on Wednesday.

Emre Can has been heavily criticised on social media for 'sexist' comments he made following Cristiano Ronaldo's red card on Wednesday evening.

Can's new £89m teammate was sent off for Juventus in the 29th minute during their 2-0 win away at Valencia in Group H of the Champions League.

Ronaldo walked off the field in tears after the incident with Jeison Murillo, leaving Can angered by the controversial dismissal.

"That's supposed to be a red!?" Can told DAZN.

"I just heard that he said it was because of hair pulling. We're not women, we're playing football.

"If you're giving that as a red card, you can be sent off for any foul. One hundred per cent, that is not a red card."

Can left some fans furious with his heated comments as many labelled the German midfielder 'sexist'.

Jack Gallagher (@calciolovesjack) tweeted: "Very ill-advised, and pretty sexist, comment from Emre Can."

Beatriz (@b1aqueen) said: "AWFUL! sexist as hell."

Juventus will be without Ronaldo for their next Champions League group match against Young Boys on October 2.
