Serious allegations have been made against former soccer vice world champion Claudio Caniggia. Four years ago he is said to have met his ex-wife, from whom he is now divorced, in a hotel to have sex with her there. But she refused. Caniggia is said to have threatened her and insulted her. According to her, she was then raped against her will. Witnesses also confirm the statements of the woman. The Argentine football icon is on trial in his home country. At the trial, however, he denied all allegations, emphasizing that his then-wife made up the story.
Caniggia went even further and said he would sue her for false testimony. The former Argentine soccer star has been married to model Sofia Bonelli since 2020. He has three children with his ex-wife. Caniggia may still be remembered by soccer fans from the soccer World Cup. At that time, the Argentinian shot the “Gauchos” alongside Diego Maradona to the final. There, however, Germany had to admit defeat with 0:1.
