- He has been left out of Portugal squad for his country's squad in this month's FIFA friendly game against Scotland
Italian League champions Juventus have thrown their weight behind embattled Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 33-year-old has been underfire in the last few weeks after his rap'e allegation dated back to 2009 re-surfaced in the media.
He was said to have rap'ed an American model during his reign at Manchester United but the case died down as they were reported to have settled out of court.
Recently, when the former Real Madrid star was asked about the case, he referred to it as fake news.
And the Serie A champions are supporting their summer striker - saying he has maintained professionalism in the middle of the crisis rocking his brand.
"Cristiano Ronaldo has shown in recent months his great professionalism and dedication, which is appreciated by everyone at Juventus.
"The events allegedly dating back to almost 10 years ago do not change this opinion, which is shared by anyone who has come into contact with this great champion."
Legit.ng previously reported that Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted to his legal team that former model Kathryn Mayorga who accused him of rap'e said 'stop' during intercourse.
The papers claim Ronaldo confirmed the 34-year-old "said ‘No’ and ‘Stop’ several times” when they were in bed together.
Mayorga alleged the Portuguese ace attacked her at a Las Vegas hotel in the summer of 2009 but Ronaldo has denied the claims calling it fake news.
