Cristiano Ronaldo's rape case has caused a huge uproar amongst the fans and a large number of them want the player to be banned from active football.

Ronaldo is now at the centre of rape allegations dating back nine years.

Cristiano Ronaldo is "ready to return to action" after being accused of rape, his manager at Juventus has said.

The Turin giants are hoping their investment will pay off and the five-time Champions League victor will lift them to their first European title since 1996 after twice finishing runners-up in the past four seasons.

Another of Ronaldo's sponsors, EA Sports, said: "We are closely monitoring the situation, as we expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA's values".

His former side Manchester United also left themselves open to criticism by using the narrative of Ronaldo's comeback to Old Trafford to promote ticket sales for their Champions League game against Juventus on October 23.

Ronaldo's current team, Italian champion Juventus, has come out in support of its recent record signing.

According to a UK Sun report, some of Ronaldo's sponsors are now keeping vigil since the alleged claims the Juventus forward forcefully bedded an ex- model in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009. The events allegedly dating back to nearly 10 years ago do not change this opinion, which is shared by anyone who has come into contact with this great champion'.

Ronaldo has vehemently denied the accusations.

Meanwhile, his club is standing firmly behind him despite the allegations.

"They have to tread carefully so that they are not pre-judging him before an investigation reaches its conclusion", said Simon Leaf, a sports and commercial lawyer at London-based Mischon de Reya.

My clear conscience will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations. We'll monitor the situation, and be sure to let you know the latest, Ranters.

The statement comes in the way of a denial from the player, who said: "Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in".
