Cristiano Ronaldo will continue playing despite rape claim - Juventus coach

Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to play for Juventus regardless of an investigation into a rape allegation against the Portuguese star, coach Massimiliano Allegri said on Friday.

“He’s very calm and working well, and I’m not the one to respond to things that don’t concern me because they are personal,” Allegri told ESPNFC at a news conference.

“Besides, he’s arrived here with great humility and settled in well, giving attention and a sense of responsibility to a side who have always had this.

“He’s scoring goals too, which is what he does best, in addition to the assists.”

Ronaldo has netted four goals and set up five in his eight Serie A games this season.

A criminal investigation involving Ronaldo is currently going on in Las Vegas, where he is accused of rape with police re-opening a case from 2009.

He has denied the accusations, labelling it an “abominable crime” and that the claim is being made “by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.”

Allegri though said Juve have to be on their toes especially with a busy schedule coming up which will also see the team take a trip to Old Trafford in midweek to face Ronaldo’s former club Manchester United.
