The soccer superstar has been accused of rape in the United States.

The Red Devils next face Juventus at Old Trafford in the Champions League on Tuesday, looking to turn Group H in their favour. I am very happy.

Meeting first in the 1996-97 Champions League, a tournament Juventus would go on to lose in the final, these two have come up against each other three times since.

Christiansen declined comment. Attorneys Leslie Mark Stovall and Larissa Drohobyczer, representing Mayorga, did not immediately respond to messages.

The five-time world player of the year had previously confronted the allegations in an Instagram video on 3 October, hours after the lawsuit was filed.

Sanchez's absence comes amid rumours he could be set to force a move away from Old Trafford, with The Times claiming over the weekend that he is unhappy with Mourinho and that his agent is on standby to talk to interested clubs should they come calling in January or next summer. Attorneys for Mayorga have challenged Ronaldo's legal team to prove that documents are false.




Ronaldo has scored five goals in his last six Serie A appearances, but has yet to open his account in the Champions League after being sent-off just 30 minutes into his European debut against Valencia.

The 33-year-old was speaking at a news conference at Old Trafford the day before the Italian team take on his former club, Manchester United. "I know, 100 per cent". On the pitch and outside the pitch. I told the players we have to keep that happiness, pride and confidence of the way we played.

Improved displays in their last two outings have helped to lift the gloom around the club, although United have not yet managed to win successive matches in front of their own fans this season.

"I have everything. So the rest, it doesn't interfere [with] me".

Juventus' Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo reacts during the Italian Serie A football match Parma vs Juventus on September 1, 2018 at Ennio Tardini stadium in Parma.

"I remember also the support as well". My history, we won lots of trophies, cups, leagues and the Champions League. The support is fantastic and Alex Ferguson is someone I will never, ever forget.

The 33-year-old scored the victor during a feisty 2-1 victory which saw Jose Mourinho's Real side knock out Sir Alex Ferguson's team at the Champions League last 16 stage in 2013.
