Former Real Madrid, Manchester City and AC Milan forward Robson de Souza, more commonly known as Robinho, has been sentenced to nine years in prison after being found guilty of sexual assault of a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a Milanese disco in 2013.
According to Football Italia, the assault took place on January 22, 2013, when the Brazilian was contracted to AC Milan. Five other men were also found guilty in the case. The report outlined the 33-year-old will have an opportunity to dispute the sentence as the Italian law system allows for “several levels of appeal” before any sentence is enforced.
Robinho is currently plying his trade with Atletico Mineiro in his native Brazil, having moved back to the Brasileiro Serie A after a brief stint with Chinese Super League outfit Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015.
Robinho was also accused of molesting a university student in a Leeds nightclub in January 2009, per the Telegraph’s Chris Irvine. It was announced in April of that year that he would not face charges.Follow us on social media:
