Morgan, who had previously criticised Ronaldo on social media amidst corruption and sexual assault allegations against the 34-year-old, has now reiterated her position.

"When you look at this story in particular, I think there's too much evidence to cover up and I think, at the end of the day, money helps put stories down," Morgan told Sports Illustrated.

"The charges were dropped, so he can and does continue playing.

"And he's not the only person that this is happening to, but he is one of the most – if not the most – famous footballers in the world right now, so obviously he's garnering attention on this.

"I think it's important to continue to support women who are in vulnerable and scary situations where they don't have a lot of support.

"That's not to say that I don't think he's one of the best footballers in the world, but that has nothing to do with it.

"What he does as a job and him entertaining people on the football field has nothing to do with who he might be as a person or the actions that he may have taken."

it is wrong for people to break the law and use money. but they also say you are innocent until proven guilty. therefore y do we label ronaldo as a rapist while he was found not guilty?

@Mr Smooth 2 this is exactly the kind of thinking that perpetuates the problems and crisis of fermicide and woman abuse we experiencing in SA.
