The ex-France international is only now disclosing it at 40, even to his mother and family.

“I now recognise that he’d tried to groom me,” he said.

Evra continued: “The head teacher, believing I’d gone to sleep, would put his hands under my bedcover and try to touch me. I knew what he was doing was wrong, so I tried to push him away and punch him.

“I was tough, but I was scared too, although I couldn’t show him my fear. This could go on for 10 or 15 minutes, like a fight. He wasn’t joking; he was going hard trying to get my pants off.

“There were no words spoken in the dark, but he was touching himself and getting s€xually excited by what was happening.

“I didn’t tell anybody. I was too ashamed to speak to my mother and I didn’t know if anyone else would believe me. I haven’t told anybody the full story until now.”

Evra reveals that “On the last night at that man’s house, when he knew that I was going back to my family, he finally succeeded: He put my p£n!s in his mouth.

Chiellini’s Juventus initially started the season poorly with no wins in their first four league games and the Italian defender, along with defensive partner Leonardo Bonucci, have slammed Ronaldo for the negative impact the club had suffered.

Speaking after Juventus 1 – 0 win against Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League on Wednesday, Chiellini told DAZN: ‘We had reached a point in the relationship where Cristiano needed new incentives and a new team that could play for him, because when he finds such a team he is decisive.

‘He has been proving it in recent months and showed it in the three years that he was with us.

‘A rejuvenation restart programme grew here at Juventus. If Ronaldo had stayed, it would have been an added value and we would have gladly exploited it, but he might be thinking more about the present than the future.

‘He left on August 28th, it would have been better for us if he had left earlier. It’s something we paid for, there’s a little shock in it for you and in my opinion we paid for it in terms of points.

‘Had he gone away on August 1st, we would have had time to prepare better.’

Chiellini’s Juventus defensive partner Bonucci also admited the Old Lady are playing with more togetherness after Ronaldo’s Turin exit.

When asked by Sky Sport Italia if Juventus are playing more as a team without Ronaldo, the Italian defender said: ‘It’s absolutely true.

‘In the recent past we had lost this characteristic from Juve, we were playing with a great champion like CR7 and we wanted to put him in a position to always do well, thinking he could solve all the matches.

‘This year we are rediscovering that right humility that it serves to regain victory.’
