Ronaldo is being sued by a Nevada woman who said he raped her in the penthouse suite of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 and then dispatched a team of “fixers” to obstruct the criminal investigation and trick her into keeping quiet for $375,000. The suit filed Thursday asks the Clark County District Court to void the 2010 settlement and non-disclosure agreement, claiming the woman was so traumatized by the events that she was incapable of participating in negotiations.

TURIN, Italy— Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to play in Saturday’s Italian league match at Udinese despite a rape allegation against him in the United States.

Allegri says Ronaldo “is doing well” and that he is “ready to return to action.”

A lawsuit was filed last week in Nevada by Kathryn Mayorga, who says she was raped by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009. Police have also re-opened an investigation. Ronaldo has denied the accusation.

Allegri says “it’s a delicate moment but he has large shoulders. I see him calm in training.”
