Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted again that he did not rape a woman at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.  Ronaldo has claimed through his lawyer that it was a “completely consensual sex”, a report said.

The soccer player’s lawyer Peter Christiansen said that Ronaldo is breaking his silence over the allegations.

The Juventus and Portuguese star’s lawyer Christiansen said this in a statement released through Gestifute. This company manages Ronaldo’s affairs. “Once again, for the avoidance of doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo’s position has always been, and continues to be, that what happened in 2009 in Las Vegas was completely consensual.”

The Las Vegas Police are reopening the investigation into allegations by ex-model, Kathryn Mayorga, relating to the 2009 incident.

The footballer is vehemently denying the rape allegations.

“I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me,” Ronaldo said in a statement.

“Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in,” he said.

Kathryn Mayorga claims that Ronaldo had pressured her into signing a non-disclosure agreement in 2010 to keep mum. Now, she is seeking at least USD 200,000 in penalties and damages.

“Cristiano Ronaldo does not deny that he agreed to conclude an agreement,” Ronaldo’s lawyer added.

“This agreement is by no means a confession of guilt. What happened was simply that Cristiano Ronaldo merely followed the advice of his advisers. He did to put an end to the insulting accusations made against him. His motive was to avoid attempts to destroy a reputation built thanks to intense work and ethically impeccable behaviour.”

“Documents that allegedly contain statements by Cristiano Ronaldo and were reproduced in the media are pure invention,” Christiansen added.
