The mother of superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has faced shield him against ambush charges after an American teacher Kathryn Mayorga censured him for striking her in a Las Vegas holding up in 2009.
Dolores Aveiro said she had ‘conviction’ in the 34-year-old Portugal forward and requested: ‘I know the youngster I have.’
The mother-of-four also lashed out at Ronaldo’s source, saying she ‘turned out inadequately his hotel to play a round of cards’.
At a PR dispatch in Lisbon she expressed: ‘I have confidence in my tyke with respect to what happened.
‘When she went there, it wasn’t to play a card amusement. It was to achieve something. I know the tyke I have.’
The Portuguese footballer has since precluded the cases in any case from claiming various reports that he paid her £290,000 settlement for her quietness after they met.
