It is quite surprising how footballers who earn millions of dollars annually would be involved in forceful sex.

Nonetheless, the players in that make up this list were all vindicated of the accusations of rape lurched at them.

Here is a list of footballers who have been accused of rape in the past:


1. Karim Benzema

In 2015, Benzema was apprehended for allegedly paying Zahia Dehar for sex when she was below 18. He denied the accusation and left the investigation to prosecutors who cleared him of the allegation after claiming that it was "impossible to prove" that Benzema had slept with the teenager.


2. Franck Ribery

Alongside his compatriot, Ribery was accused of statutory rape in 2014 for allegedly making a payment to sleep with the same Zahia Dehar. Both Frenchmen were proven innocent upon investigation.

Zahia Dehar, now 28 years old, have gone on to become a household name in France's fashion industry and also doubles as a TV reality star.


3. Neymar Jr.

In 2018, a woman named Najila Trindade and her partner levelled an allegation of sexual abuse on the former by the Paris Saint Germain striker.

Neymar defiantly refuted the rape allegations, claiming that he had never asked the woman to meet him in any hotel in Paris as the woman claimed.

Few months later, Neymar was cleared of the charges and the police levelled charges on Najila and her partner for fake allegations against the Brazilian footballer.


4. David De Gea

In 2016, the Manchester United no. 1 was wrongly implicated in a sexual abuse allegation with his national teammate Iker Muniain for having taken a woman to a hotel where the two footballers abused her.

Upon investigations, the footballers were cleared of the charges.


5. Cristiano Ronaldo



In 2018, a Las Vegas woman, Kathryn Mayorga, filed a lawsuit, alleging that the brilliant Portuguese playmaker had invited her to a penthouse suite, sexually abused her and offered $375,000 to keep it a secret.

Ronaldo's lawyer had said that whatever happened in the penthouse suite in Las Vegas was purely consensual.

In 2019, Las Vegas prosecutors declared that the allegations could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt given that in 2010, Mayorga had gone out-of-court to accept settlement never to go public about the meeting.
