Ronaldo insists he is an ‘example’ amid rape allegations

Ronaldo insists he is an ‘example’ amid rape allegations

The Chilean worldwide was a late substitute against Chelsea but wasn't able to train today and Mourinho confirmed at his pre-match press conference that Sanchez wasn't available due to an unspecified injury.

He added: "I am always smiling, a happy man".

Tuesday's clash will be the first time the Italian champions have taken on United in 15 years, while it is only Ronaldo's second competitive club match back at Old Trafford since his move to the Bernabeu. I'm not happy at all with more than that. I don't think he deserves anything more than the facts that his club was strong with him and he went through a situation that in the end he recognises that he was wrong. "All I'm thinking about is Manchester United".

He only appeared as a substitute against Chelsea and now Alexis Sanchez will miss Manchester United's Champions League game with Juventus. "I hope they let the kid to". I told the players we have to keep that happiness, pride and confidence of the way we played. "We have to respect Manchester United, because they have a fantastic team, they have an experienced coach, but I expect Juve to win the game". The Ecuadorian worldwide is back in full training but this game may come too soon so Ashley Young could retain his place at right-back.

The accusation hasn´t so far affected Ronaldo´s form on the field for his new club, who he joined from Madrid for 112 million euros ($128 million) in July.

Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford, claiming three Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League. I enjoy a lot to play there. He is a person who helped me so much.

His spectacular overhead kick for Real Madrid against Juventus was overlooked in favour of a Mo Salah strike, but Ronaldo insisted he is not concerned about the snub.
