It is hard to imagine a footballer, with all the women that are craving for them, being involved in forcible sex. This article isn’t comprehensive of all the incidents of sexual misconduct footballers have been accused of. Down are some of the footballers who were once accused of rape.

The French duo will miss the 2018 world cup. However, back in 2014, both Ribery, 35, and Benzema, 30, denied the assault: knowingly paying for sex with Zahia Dehar when she was under 18.

Now 24, Zahia Dehar has become one of the most famous names in France since the players were first arrested, building up a career as a reality TV star, and the muse of designer Karl Lagerfeld.

3. David De Gea

Five days ago, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was the only player not to applaud Spain’s new prime minister Pedro Sanchez after he delivered a speech to the national team ahead of the World Cup.

The tension between De Gea and Sanchez can be traced back to 2016 when the Manchester United goalkeeper was wrongly implicated in a sexual assault investigation in Spain.
