Ronaldo on target again as Juve maintain ideal start

  • Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo played for Juventus Saturday and scored a goal in a 2-0 win over Udinese.

World Cup victor Steven Nzonzi set AS Roma on their way to a 2-0 win at Empoli (five points) which lifted them to third (14) ahead of Sunday's games.

Ronaldo's powerful, angled goal, the second of the match and his fourth of the season, was met by applause and boos in the Italian league game at the home of Udinese.

Santos, quoted on the website of Portuguese sports newspaper O Jogo, said: "I personally always support my players and here it is not even a question of solidarity, I believe what the player said publicly, he considers (rape) an abject act and clearly reaffirms that he is innocent of what he is being accused of".

But a full-page advert showing Ronaldo wearing only underpants appeared in Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper on Saturday.

This might be because Los Angeles police have now reopened the case and the investigation is now moving forward, meaning there could be further developments soon.

The back page was dominated by an advert for Ronaldo's line of underwear, featuring a full-page photograph of the player bare-chested. On Friday, they closed down 9.92% at €1.19 on the Milan stock exchange.


The video game makers said they too would monitor the allegations against Ronaldo as "expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA's values".

Video games company EA Sports, which features Ronaldo on the cover of its new Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 game, issued a similar statement, telling AP it was "closely monitoring the situation, as we expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA's values".

Ronaldo, 33, has repeatedly denied Ms Mayorga's claims. "So, to assume as certain what is a mere accusation, if you excuse me, one can not rely on permanent public trials that took so many years to build".

However, the Italian club's reaction to the issue has angered some fans as "dismissive" and "insensitive".

The defending Serie A champions' tweets were widely panned on social media as "dismissive" and "insensitive".

Mayorga claims she was pressured into signing a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 to keep the alleged rape secret and is seeking at least $200,000 in penalties and damages.
