The action of the club Juventus of Turin collapsed by 9.2% this Friday following the dissemination of information in the wake of the campaign « me-too ». A 24-year-old American girl at the time said she was forcibly sodomized by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.
The announcement followed a spiral of decisions and counter-decisions. The Nike equipment manufacturer, who signed a lifetime sponsorship deal with the captain of the Portugal team, said he was « worried » by these worrying accusations. Even more expeditious, EA Games, which publishes the FIFA 19 video game, has withdrawn the Portuguese from its online promotional material. An investigation was opened in the United States.
Confidentiality agreement breached
The publication by the German daily Spiegel, Saturday, September 29, of a thorough investigation in which Kathryn Mayorga accuses the five-fold Golden Ball of having raped her in June 2009 in Las Vegas seems to have packed the football planet and the Milan Stock Exchange , down 1.9% on Friday. According to the document that Reuters was able to consult, the young woman claims to have been forced to sign a confidentiality agreement of 375,000 dollars (324,000 euros).
The denial of the world star is however categorical but not necessarily audible: « rape is an abominable crime that goes against all that I am and what I believe, » wrote the Portuguese on his Twitter account, adding « refuse to feed this media circus mounted by people who seek to advertise at my expense. »
