UPDATE: Ronaldo Returns to FIFA 19 Website

Update: Ronaldo is back on the FIFA 19 website. Maybe they liked his goals for Juventus yesterday.

Amidst the recent rape accusations against Cristiano Ronaldo, EA Sports has removed the Portuguese's picture from the FIFA 19 website.

EA is one of Ronaldo's main sponsors and recently stated it would be "closely monitoring" the situation (via Polygon).

"We have seen the concerning report that details allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo. We are closely monitoring the situation, as we expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA’s values."

This move follows a story published by German magazine Der Spiegel last weekend, giving new details on an alleged sexual assault by Ronaldo in Las Vegas in 2009. A criminal case has been reopened while the woman, who initially closed a non-disclosure agreement with CR7, seeks to nullify it and recently filed a civil lawsuit against Ronaldo.

Nike, probably Ronaldo's main sponsor had similar things to say. In a statement, Nike said: "We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation."
