CRISTIANO Ronaldo, the 5-time world player of the year who is currently facing a criminal investigation into charges of rape, has been accused by several former teammates of sexaul assault.
Wayne Rooney and Real Madrid’s Marcelo reportedly lead a host of former teammates accusing Ronaldo, alleging that many of the incidents even happened live during football games.
The Portuguese captain is charged with raping a woman in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009 and prosecutors believe this could be part of a pattern of abusive behavior, starting with Ronaldo’s days at Manchester United.
As previously reported, Ronaldo somehow avoided punishment by authorities in 2006 where he openly performed oral sex on Wayne Rooney during a game against Bolton Wanderers.
United decided not to punish Ronaldo on that occasion, hoping the behaviour was a one-off, but it appears his pattern continued at Real Madrid, where Ronaldo unashamedly sexually assaulted Marcelo last year in front of 90,000 fans.
Ronaldo’s legal team have announced they will fight the claims, stating that “in both instances all parties consented, particularly Mr. Rooney as the photographic evidence suggests”.
