Cristiano Ronaldo set to play for Juventus amid rape allegation

"I've known Cristiano for three months now and for over 15 years of his career he has shown to be a great professional both on and off the pitch", he added.

A woman named Kathryn Mayorga has accused the footballer of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel room in June, 2009.

EA called these allegations "concerning" and said that it's monitoring the situation.

"Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in", said Ronaldo on his Twitter feed @Cristiano, which has almost 75 million followers.

"Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense", Ronaldo said on Twitter on Wednesday.

But lawyers for 34-year-old Mayorga hit back, saying their client had been "very consistent" in her reporting of the alleged incident, the details of which have been set out in a 32-page lawsuit filed last month with a district court in Nevada. Ronaldo is still featured heavily within the game itself, and part of the FIFA Ultimate Team Ones to Watch promotion as the highest rated player in the game, and he's obviously still on all the existing promotional material out there.

Federal Bureau of Investigation finds 'no hint of misconduct' into Kavanaugh, Senate judiciary chair says
Trump on Tuesday inflamed tensions over Kavanaugh's nomination by mocking Blasey Ford at a Republican rally in Mississippi. Early Thursday afternoon, the three Republican undecided votes - Flake, Collins and Alaska Sen.

Legal papers submitted by Mayorga's legal team to the Las Vegas police authorities claimed he attacked her even though she was screaming 'No, no, no!' Nike's contract with the Portuguese football star is reportedly worth $1 billion.

Both Juve and Ronaldo's worldwide head coach Fernando Santos have offered unwavering support to the 33-year-old, although he was left out of the Portugal squad for the upcoming matches against Poland and Scotland, and Allegri has confirmed he is available to face Udinese.

The club is listed on the stock exchange and its share price, which rose significantly when Ronaldo was signed in July, fell again on Friday by more than 5 per cent.

"Cristiano is fine", Allegri said.

"Ronaldo is enjoying his football, he has integrated very well".
