- Cristiano Ronaldo's mum Aveiro blasts Kathryn Mayorga of wrongfully accusing his son of assault
- The Juventus superstar was said to have ra'ped American lade while at Manchester United
Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo's mother has blasted Kathryn Mayorga after accusing the Juventus star of assault.
The 64-year-old mother of the five-time Ballon d'or winner insists that she has complete trust in his son, saying: “I know the son I have.”
She questioned Mayorga's motives of following Ronaldo to his room, claiming the American “didn’t go to his hotel room to play cards” in Las Vegas in 2009.
Dolores backed her son on social media last October by posting a picture of him in a Superman cape.
She said: “I want to see who has the courage to put this photo on their profile for a week and make a chain for him..for Portugal, for him, for us and for the union of our people, for justice. He deserves it.”
The cartoon-style picture of Ronaldo carried two hashtags in Portuguese. One translated as #Ronaldo, we are with you to the end and the other #Justicacr7 as #Justice for CR7.”
She told a Portuguese daily as she launched her own wine and olive oil brand, in a clear-cut reference to Ronaldo’s accuser: “I have confidence in my son when it comes to what happened.
"When she went there, it wasn’t to play cards. It was to do something. I know the son I have.”
Ronaldo, who recently turned 34 has been impressive since he joined Juventus in August 2018 - scoring 17 goals and six assists in Serie A matches.
He emerge as the most successful player in Europe last campaign after winning his fifth Champions League title with Real Madrid in Kiev.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo admitted to his legal team that former model Kathryn Mayorga who accused him of r'ape 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.
