Real Madird FC have issued a statement in which he have given their full support towards star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
This comes in the wake of a lawsuit that was filed against the Portuguese captain by the prosecutor’s office in Madrid. They claim Ronaldo has defrauded authorities of 14.7m Euros from 2011 to 2014.
This claim was furiously denied by the representatives of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“It is clear that the football player did not try to evade taxes,” Ronaldo’s Gestifute management company said.
According to the prosecutors, Ronaldo used a ‘business structure’ to hide the income which he generated from his image rights.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid rang the local newspapers to ensure that Cristiano was not in the papers wearing a Los Blancos shirt.
