Alex Morgan is ready to meet Cristiano Ronaldo, even after her some curious if not skeptical words on the player outside of being a footballer.

There were social media comments made in respect to some rather unbecoming accusations that faced the five-time Balon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

US women’s national team’s superstar Alex Morgan never made any accusations or insinuations.

But rather illuded to the fact that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man should be treated just like everyone else regardless of the fact he is a footballer.

In regard to such circumstances as the sexual assault allegations, he was confronted with.

The Clarke County tweet was used as part of an article titled “Ronaldo is an icon of corruption In sports.”

Morgan commented on the article.


“Now this is great journalism.”

Both players are on their respective shortlists for FIFA’s best. Ronaldo for the best male player, and Morgan for the best female.

The award ceremony which will take place in Milan where the pair could very likely come in to contact or have the opportunity to perhaps exchange words.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated reported by Marca, Morgan said of Ronaldo:

“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.”

“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 – 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.”

Of a possible or even probable encounter with Ronaldo, she added:

“I don’t anticipate approaching him any differently than I would approach anyone else who I meet.”
