Robinho: Ex-Brazil, Manchester City and Real Madrid star told to serve nine-year rape sentence

Former Manchester City and Real Madrid forward Robinho must serve a nine-year rape sentence in his home country of Brazil, a court has ruled.

Robinho, 40, was found guilty by an Italian court in 2017 of taking part in the 2013 gang rape of a 22-year-old Albanian woman.

He has been living in Brazil, which does not extradite its nationals.

Judges in Brasilia ruled on Wednesday that he should serve his sentence in Brazil following a request from Italy.

He will remain free pending a possible appeal against the ruling, lawyers said.

The former Brazil international, who has 100 caps for his country, was playing for AC Milan at the time of the crime.

After being found guilty he lost an appeal in 2020 before Italy's highest court upheld his sentence in 2022.

Italian prosecutors then issued an international arrest warrant for him.

The footballer, who spent two years with Manchester City, told a Brazilian network on Sunday that the sex had been "consensual".

Robinho won two La Liga titles in four seasons at Real Madrid, before joining City for a then-British record fee of £32.5m on transfer deadline day in September 2008 - also Sheikh Mansour's first day as owner of the Premier League club.

After two seasons he joined AC Milan, where he spent the next five years before moving to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande and returning to Brazil with Atletico Mineiro.

Dani Alves: Ex-Brazil player to be freed on €1m bail after rape conviction

Spanish court has ruled that ex-Barcelona and Brazil footballer Dani Alves can be conditionally released from jail after serving about a quarter of his sentence for rape.

Alves, who was sentenced to four and a half years in prison last month, will be released on a €1m (£853,000) bail.

He had been held in pre-trial detention since January 2023.

The 40-year-old was found guilty of raping a woman in a Barcelona nightclub in December 2022.

The victim's lawyer called the decision "a scandal".

The conditions for his release include turning over both his Brazilian and Spanish passports so he cannot leave Spain.

He must also appear before the court on a weekly basis.

The court additionally imposed a restraining order, preventing him from approaching the victim.

The ruling came a day after Alves' lawyer requested his release on the grounds that he had already served a quarter of his sentence in pre-trial detention following his arrest.

The decision, which was not unanimous due to a dissenting vote from one of the judges, can still be appealed.

The victim's lawyer, Ester Garcia, said: "To me, it's a scandal that they let a person who they know can get a million euros in no time walk free."

Ms Garcia told RAC1 radio she was "outraged and dissatisfied" with the ruling, adding it was "a justice (system) for the rich" and that she would lodge an appeal.

Lawyers for Alves have not yet commented

BigP appears to derive a lot of pleasure from seeing successful people humiliated regardless of the circumstances.

Btw, Italian courts are notorious for wrongfully convicting non Italians🤔❗️

Stop it! The way Robinho ran away from Italy tells me he was up to something. He’s accused of a three some /rape assault. They must have some DNA evidence on him to come after him hard. Minus the Dani Alves case, Spanish authorities are notorious for wrongful accusations/shake downs.

Anyone who is familiar with the Italian justice system will understand why Robinho didn’t want to stick around. You should go and review the case of Amanda Knox, an American student in Italy who was wrongfully convicted of murdering her roommate. She was one of the very few lucky ones🤔❗️
