Robinho Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison for Sexual Assault in Italy

ROME – Former Real Madrid and Manchester City player Robson de Souza Santos, better known as “Robinho,” was sentenced on Thursday to nine years in prison by an Italian court for a sexual assault that took place in a Milan night club in 2013, media reports said.

The Milan court convicted the Brazilian player of a sexual assault that occurred on Jan. 22, 2013, when the then-Milan player took part in the gang rape of a 22-year-old Albanian woman.

Robinho, however, rejected the sentence, saying that he would take all the legal action at his disposal to overturn the verdict.

The soccer player denied being involved in the gang rape, in which five other men took part, media reports said.

The 33-year-old Robinho now plays for Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro.

Atletico Mineiro officials told EFE that this was a personal matter and the club would not comment on the case.

When news of an investigation into the assault broke in October 2014, Robinho denied any wrongdoing.

In 2009, when Robinho played in England, he was released on bail after being questioned over an alleged sexual assault at a night club.

The player denied the allegations.
