Despite this draw, the current champion Juventus is at the top of the table with 25 points. Massimiliano Allegri, chief coach of Italy’s club Juventus, says that the charismatic forward Cristiano Ronaldo will play for the team despite facing investigations in connection with the rape. Allegri said, “He is very quiet and working. I do not want to react to things that I do not believe because they are personal issues.”
Allegri said, “He has come here with great humbleness and has mixed up well; he is also doing the round and he does it very well, besides, he has done important assist.”
Ronaldo is undergoing criminal investigation in Las Vegas, in which he is being charged with rape. The police have started the case again in 2009. However, Ronaldo has denied these allegations.
