At the end of last year, Christiano Ronaldo was accused of rape. Perhaps there is more to these accusations, as Electronic Arts has decided to replace all advertising and marketing material for FIFA 19, which featured the Juventus Turin player - including the cover of the game. Future versions of FIFA 19 will have a new cover featuring Devin de Bruyne, Neymar and Paulo Dybala.

The new cover was announced on Twitter.

In 2009, Christiano Ronaldo is said to have had sex with the American Kathryn Mayorga in a hotel in Las Vegas, which she did not commit to. Questionnaires from the professional footballer's attorneys revealed contradictions that substantiated this suspicions. In an inquiry in September 2018, he admitted that Mayorga had said Stop and No several times. In a later version, Ronaldo was asked the same question, this time presenting the case as if there had been no statements that contradicted consensual sex.

Fifa 19 has been released on the 28th September 2018 and is available for PlayStation, Xbox and PC. You can find the cheapest Fifa 19 price for PC here.
