Ronaldo is being asked by police to provide a DNA sample in an investigation of the allegation by Kathryn Mayorga, a former model and schoolteacher, that he raped her in his Las Vegas hotel penthouse in 2009 and paid her to keep quiet.
Speaking in a pre-match news conference, Allegri says “Ronaldo’s case is a private matter. … I’ve seen him very calm.”
Allegri adds that Ronaldo will play in an Italian Cup match at Bologna on Saturday: “He’ll play tomorrow. We’ll see about when and how.”
