Robinho sentenced to nine years for 2013 sexual assault

Former Manchester City football star Robinho has reportedly been sentenced to nine years in prison for rape by a Milan court.

According to a report by Sky Sports, the 33-year-old star is now in Brazil, playing for Atletico Mineiro.

According to Italian wire service ANSA, the 33-year-old Brazilian, who now plays for Atletico Mineiro in his native country, was convicted, along with five others, of gang-raping a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a Milan nightclub in January 2013.

"I clarify that my client has already defended himself against the charges and maintains he played no part in the incident".

It was reported that Robinho has the right to two appeals in Italy and the sentence will not be enforced until that process has been completed, which could mean extradition proceedings being activated.

Relatives of crew members unfurled a flag at the naval base that read: "Be strong Argentina, We trust in God, We wait for you". The Argentine Navy continues to coordinate with global allies in the search for its submarine, a media report said.

"All legal provisions are being taken on this first decision".

Robinho was also accused of sexual assault in London in 2009 while at Manchester City but was cleared of any wrongdoing. After a brief stay at Chinese team, Guangzhou Evergrande, he joined Atletico Mineiro previous year. However, Brazil does not allow for the extradition of its own citizens, meaning he would only risk arrest and deportation if he was stopped in a third country.

The Brazilian player was one of the most sought-after in 2005 when he made his big-money move from Santos to Real Madrid.

A lack of discipline, however, began to dog Robinho, and he was soon returning to Santos before a spell in Italy where the assault took place.

Robinho has won 100 caps for Brazil, scoring 28 goals.
