Nike 'Deeply Concerned' About Rape Allegations Against Ronaldo

"He is ready to play tomorrow".

Ronaldo denied all accusations made by Kathryn Mayorga, who Spiegel Online report to have been silenced by the footballer when he allegedly raped her after in Las Vegas nearly ten years ago.

The Portuguese striker "has shown in recent months his great professionalism and dedication, which is appreciated by everyone at Juventus", the club wrote on Twitter Thursday, breaking their silence over the allegations.

Leonardo Spinazzola, Sami Khedira and Daniele Rugani are all sidelined, meaning Juve are expected to adopt a 4-3-3 formation. Juventus prepared for the league match in northeast Italy against Udinese by offering full support for Ronaldo.

A week ago, the new edition of the Federation Internationale de Football Association video game franchise was released with Ronaldo as a cover star.

Currently, the publisher behind the soccer simulator, EA Sports, is considering replacing Cristiano Ronaldo as the game's cover athlete after rape allegations have been made.

Ronaldo was not included in the Portugal national team squad announced on Thursday for their upcoming games, but Allegri said that was a decision he was already aware of.

Nike said: "We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation".
