Dani Alves of Brazil was imprisoned on remand in Spain on charges of sexual assault

The regional court system said on Friday that a Spanish judge has sentenced Dani Alves, a soccer player for Brazil, to be held without bail in jail while on remand for an alleged sexual assault of a lady in a Barcelona nightclub.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the 39-year-old was transferred to the Brians 1 prison outside of Barcelona even though he has denied any wrongdoing.

Alves was arrested and interrogated by Barcelona police earlier on Friday before making his court appearance. He had been imprisoned without bond awaiting trial at the request of the public prosecutor.

An inquiry for comments was not answered by Alves’ lawyers.

His Mexican team, Pumas UNAM, declared that his contract had been cancelled with immediate effect.

Pumas sporting president Leopoldo Silva stated, The club reiterates its resolve to not tolerate activities by any member, whoever they may be, that go against the club’s ethos and its ideals.

We must not let one person’s actions compromise our work philosophy, which has served as an example throughout history.

According to a statement from Catalonia’s court system, the accused victim had complained earlier this month, and the case is still pending over a crime of sexual assault.

Earlier this month, Alves admitted to being at the club with other people to Antena 3 TV but denied engaging in any inappropriate behaviour.

He claimed, I was dancing and enjoying life without infringing anyone’s space.  I’m not familiar with this woman. How could I treat a woman like that? No.

Alves played for Barcelona from 2008 to 2016 and made a brief comeback in the 2021–2022 LaLiga season.

He has made 126 appearances and eight goals for the Brazil national team since 2006.
