SAINT-MARTIN-DE-RE, FRANCE: Chelsea forward Pedro Rodriguez insisted on Saturday that Spain’s quest to win an unprecedented third consecutive European Championship will not be blown off course by sex scandal claims against goalkeeper David De Gea. The Eldiario.es news website reported witness testimony that alleged De Gea organised a party at which women were forced to have sex with two footballers. The Manchester United stopper fiercely denied the claims as “a lie”. “David is very well, I see him training calmly and he was calm when we spoke about the subject,” Pedro said. “We are with him, we need to support him. We are calm, as is he and this will not destabilise us,” Pedro said.
