A Brazilian court has decided that former forward Robinho of Manchester City and Real Madrid shall serve a nine-year term for rape in his native country.

An Italian court determined in 2017 that Robinho, 40, had participated in the 2013 gang rape of a 22-year-old Albanian woman.

Brazil, which does not extradite its citizens, is where he has been residing.On Wednesday, Brasilian judges decided, at Italy’s request, that he should serve out his term in Brazil.

Lawyers stated that he will stay free pending the possibility of an appeal against the decision.

At the time of the incident, the former Brazil international—who has 100 caps for his nation—was on the AC Milan team.

He was found guilty and lost an appeal in 2020; in 2022, the highest court in Italy maintained the sentence.

After that, an international arrest warrant for him was issued by Italian prosecutors.

The football player, who played for Manchester City for two years, claimed on Sunday that the relationship had been “consensual” to a Brazilian network.

Prior to joining City for a then-British record cost of £32.5 million on transfer deadline day in September 2008—also Sheikh Mansour’s first day as the Premier League club’s owner—Robinho won two La Liga titles in four seasons at Real Madrid.

Following two seasons, he moved to AC Milan, where he stayed for the next five years until joining Guangzhou Evergrande in China and then joining Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.
