'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ronaldo's Agent Issues Statement

Jorge Mendes:

'First and foremost, the detention for questioning that the media have referred to is a formality of British Law that does not exist as such in Portuguese law. The truth is that Cristiano Ronaldo had already agreed with the police authorities to be questioned on this matter today and for such purpose went to the police precinct of his own free will.

“In fact, since the events under investigation supposedly took place on October 2nd, the amount of time that has lapsed since such date clearly demonstrates that today’s questioning is hardly an extraordinary or urgent measure and is in fact a common step in the ongoing investigations.

“In relation to the matter under investigation, the accusation of rape that has been made against Cristiano Ronaldo is totally and categorically repudiated. As the investigations will demonstrate, these charges are not based on any credible facts and are clearly the product of the imagination and fantasy of the young lady, in an attempt to profit by dropping the charges in exchange for a considerable sum.

“Symptomatic of the above is the fact that the young ladies involved only brought charges after their attempts to sell their story to British newspapers failed. Equally relevant is the fact that these charges were initially made by two young ladies, one of whom has already dropped charges, for no compensation whatsoever, due to the blatantly obvious lack of grounds.

“In any event, it should be additionally stated that the player’s lawyers entrusted with this matter, James Chapman and Carlos Osório de Castro, have been instructed not only to accompany the proceedings but also to legally react against any abusive attempt to profit from this matter.”

Carlos Queiroz told Portuguese TV:

“Cristiano has presented himself freely to go to the station. He is calm but obviously he’s not pleased to be involved in the stories that are not true.

“There are two sides to every story but this accusation is pathetic.”

why has this been reported in the papers that ronny was arrested, when according to this article and other sources, he attended the police station of his own free will? what happened to innocent until proven guilty? this should have been kept out of the papers until the matter was investigated enough to establish that there was a case to answer...
