Cristiano Ronaldo: Portgual star left off squad amid rape claims

04 October, 2018, 19:39 | Author: Donna Miller

Lawyers for Mayorga have this week sued Ronaldo in a district court in Clark County, Nevada, and on Wednesday gave a press conference in which they said the Portugal forward had 20 days from the filing of the lawsuit to respond.

Ronaldo - arguably the best player in the world - was left off the roster for an October 11 match against Poland and an October 14 game against Scotland.

Ronaldo had said on Twitter Wednesday he awaited the result of a reopened police inquiry "with tranquillity". "I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me", he said.

"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".

After she refused his demand to perform oral sex and said she wanted to leave, Ronaldo pulled her into a bedroom and anally raped her while she screamed "no, no, no", according to the suit. "For the next two squad selections, this one and the one next month, Ronaldo won't be with us".

Ronaldo also missed Portugal's first two post-World Cup matches last month, with Santos saying then that Ronaldo had only just moved to Italian club Juventus and was still settling down there.
