Cristiano Ronaldo has been ensnared in the rape allegations by the American woman named Kathryn Mayorga. But that hasn’t affected his performance on the pitch. He has time and again scored for the team in crucial matches. Even the brands like Nike have rendered their support to the Portuguese football star and Juventus too had openly tweeted in favour of Ronaldo. Now, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli also pledged his support for the football star.

The Juventus president during the press conference said that he spoke to Ronaldo directly about the matter and post the conversation between the two, the President found nothing wrong. Agnelli even promised to keep his club doors open for the football star. “When there are problems I tend to look people in the eyes, ask them the questions directly and then judge them myself," Agnelli said at a media conference. "I'm very calm, having spoken to him directly as soon as the case emerged, on his position. And his behaviour in the days and weeks that followed only confirm my initial feeling. It's a personal case, but I spoke to him with [vice chairman] Pavel [Nedved] and [sporting director] Fabio [Paratici] and I told Cristiano that my door and the door of Juventus will always be open whenever he would need something,” he further explained.
Ronaldo repeatedly has repeatedly pleaded his innocence about the allegation made by Kathryn Mayorga. Once over the video and the other by tweeting his heart out.
