Cristiano Ronaldo Protest Group Flies ‘Believe Kathryn Mayorga’ Banner Naming

His rape accuser over old Trafford as he makes his second debut – but he goes on to score two goals as man utd win 4-1

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United was met with a feminist protest in the sky above Old Trafford.

An aircraft flew over the stadium trailing a banner with the words ‘believe Kathryn Mayorga’, in reference to an ongoing civil case taken against Ronaldo in the United States

. Mayorga reported a rape allegation in the hours after meeting Ronaldo in Las Vegas during June 2009.

A criminal investigation ended in 2019, with the Las Vegas police department stating that the allegation could not ‘be proven beyond reasonable doubt’. Mayorga has a civil suit worth £56m ongoing.

Ronaldo has strenuously denied the claims and branded them ‘fake news’. Ronaldo seemed undeterred by the impassioned protest as he went on to score two goals in his comeback game, resulting in a 4-1 victory for Manchester United over Newcastle.

An expectant sell-out crowd chorused the 36-year-old’s name as he emerged from the tunnel ahead of a second debut for the club following last month’s £20million move from Juventus.
