A smiling Cristiano Ronaldo insisted Monday he is an "example" in his behaviour on and off the field amid allegations of rape made against the five-time Ballon d'Or victor in the United States.

Juventus are taking on Manchester United in the Champions League this midweek and Cristiano Ronaldo made a rare media appearance on the eve of the match, although he wouldn't discuss the crisis at his former club Real Madrid.

Juventus released a statement after the allegations were published backing their player but sponsors have been more circumspect, with Nike - who signed Ronaldo to a lifetime contract - saying they were "deeply concerned" by the allegation.

Asked about his status as a soccer role model, the 33-year-old Ronaldo said on Monday: "I know I am an example". I know, 100%. On the pitch and outside the pitch.

"I always smile, I'm blessed, I play at a fantastic club, I have a fantastic family, I'm healthy, I have everything".

"I have everything, so the rest doesn't interfere.so I'm very, very glad".

"I'm serious. I want to thank Sarri for his honest and Chelsea for it's honesty too".

"I stopped listening to any kind of suggestion and I just said: "OK, let's go home". On the pitch and outside (of) the pitch, so I am always smiling, I am a happy man. I am glad [about how it progresses]. I don't think he deserves anything more than the facts that his club was strong with him and he went through a situation that in the end he recognises that he was wrong.

However, while they have not been on opposite sides particularly often over the past decade, an in-form Ronaldo will surely be confident of improving a dismal record of one goal in 14 games against his compatriot, who has lost just one of five meetings with Juve as a coach.

"The rest, I have people who take care of my life".

Kathryn Mayorga filed a civil lawsuit last month in Nevada claiming Ronaldo raped her in his Las Vegas hotel room in 2009.

The match kicks off at 21:00 CEST on Tuesday evening.

Juve and United are favourites to progress from their Champions League group having started strongly. "We are in a great position and a win tomorrow will go a long way".

Juve now leads Group H after two matches on six points.
