A Milan court on Thursday sentenced former AC Milan and Brazil forward Robinho aka Robson de Souza Santos to nine years in jail for gang raping a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a Milan disco on January 22 2013.
Robinho has protested his innocence and announced he will appeal after reportedly being sentenced to nine years in prison for rape.
It said: "On the news involving striker Robinho, in fact that happened a few years ago, we clarified that he already defended himself against the charges, saying he had no participation in the episode".
"All legal steps are already being taken in response to this decision". The whereabouts of Robinho's five companions is not known, so their trial has been put on hold.
