Judges of Milan’s Court of Appeal jailed Brazilian footballer, Robinho to nine years in prison for his involvement in the gang rape of a woman at an Italian nightclub in 2013.

Robinho was plying his trade at Serie A club AC Milan when the incident took place and in 2017, was found guilty along with five others.

The ex-Manchester City attacker saw his sentence upheld in December 2020 but denied the charges and launched another appeal.

Robinho, who did not attend the hearings in person and is currently plays for Brazilian side Santos, has 45 days to lodge a further appeal with the Supreme Court, Italy’s highest court of appeal.

Earlier on Tuesday, reports from The Sun revealed that Robinho was sentenced to nine years in jail for ‘brutally humiliating’ and ‘belittling’ an Albanian woman in 2013.

It is suggested that the woman was celebrating her 23rd birthday at a well-known nightclub in Milan when the horrific incident occurred.

The footballer and five others were found guilty of gang rape in 2017 and the former Man City footballer was charged with a prison sentence in December last year.
