The banner with the name of Ronaldo’s alleged rape victim was believe written on the banner that flew over Old Trafford during the start of the game.
The 36-year-old football sensation has this afternoon made his return to Manchester United for their Premier League clash against Newcastle.
With the game unfolding at the Man U stadium, a plane with a banner with Believe Kathryn Mayorga across it has been circling above in protest against the Portugal captain.
Kathryn previously accused Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in a Las Vegas hotel room after meeting on a night out in 2009, when she was 25 – an allegation he vehemently denies.
Court documents revealed in April that she is claiming £56million in damages.
She wants £18m for “past pain and suffering”, £18m for “future pain and suffering” and £18m in punitive damages.
The 37-year-old’s expenses rack up to £1.4m.
That includes legal fees of £1.1m. And it means the grand total is a whopping £56.5m – equal to two years of the Juventus star’s salary.
In 2010, Ms Mayorga accepted $375,000 – £270,000 – as part of an out-of-court non-disclosure settlement.
But three years ago, Ms Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit in Las Vegas saying she had been “mentally incapacitated” when she agreed to it.
And she claims she signed it under duress.
