Former Manchester City star Robinho given nine year sentence over sex assault

Former Manchester City star Robinho sentenced to nine years in prison

Brazilian footballer Robinho has reportedly been sentenced to nine years in prison after being found guilty of sexual assault.

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

Although this is a guilty verdict and a nine-year prison sentence awarded, the Italian justice system includes several levels of appeal.

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".

The Sun reports the former Manchester City ace is one of a group of five convicted of assaulting an Albanian girl in a Milan nightclub on January 22, 2013.

Under Italian law he won't be sentenced until the appeals process has been finalised - which could take years.

'All legal steps are already being taken in response to this decision'. Five other men have also been found guilty of the offence.

The star, meanwhile, issued a statement on Instagram denying his involvement. He has 100 Brazil caps and 28 goals for his country.

His time in England, though, was not as successful and he was later moved on to the San Siro for less than half of City's initial outlay, making them just £15m when he departed.

Robinho moved to Europe amid much hype in 2005 when he joined Real Madrid from Santos - but he only showed his talent intermittently.

Robino played at AC Milan later after 16 months where he won the Serie A title with players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano.

The Brazilian star had previously been accused of sexual assault while at City in 2009, but was later cleared of the charges.
