Former Brazilian star in new trouble


Former Brazilian football big up Robinho, whose career crashed, was a member of Brazilian Premier League Santos for just one week. His home club broke the contract of the 36-year-old striker due to violent media pressure. Robinho was sentenced to imprisonment in Italy in 2017 for participating in gang rape.
A three-year-old Brazilian court sentenced a long-time Brazilian international, who even played for Manchester City in his career, to nine years in prison after finding him guilty of participating in the gang rape of an Albanian woman in 2013. A Milan court ruled that Robinho and five other Brazilians attacked a woman who was 22 at the time after he intoxicated her with alcohol in a Milan nightclub. Only the footballer was convicted as no accomplices were found.

Robinho, who had a contract with Milan from 2010 to 2015, pleaded not guilty through his lawyer and did not appear at any of the hearings. The case is not yet final, as Robinho has appealed. And even when the trial is over, Robinho will not serve his sentence, as Brazil does not allow the extradition of its own citizens, which means it would risk arrest and deportation only if caught in a third country.

At the same time, a Milan court awarded the victim 60,000 euros in compensation.

Robinho, who has even been described as the successor to the famous Pele, has played in 100 games for Brazil and scored 28 goals. He started his career at Santos, where he played on the team that won the league in 2002 and 2004. His performances brought him a move across the big puddle to Real Madrid in 2005, where he stayed for three years and won the la league twice before moved to City in a transfer worth € 42 million, where he stayed for less than two years due to injury problems.

In recent years, his career has begun to fade, after adventures in China and Turkey, last season he was a member of the Turkish Istanbul Basaksehir, he moved to his home club for the fourth time in his career. But only for a week. Santos was forced to break the contract due to pressure from the public and organizations against violence against women, prompting sponsors to threaten to withdraw their support for the club if a footballer named Robson de Souza remained at the club.

The pressure on the club intensified when the Globo Esporte TV channel aired excerpts from a clip used by Italian prosecutors during a trial in which the actor allegedly said, “I laugh because I don’t care. The woman was completely drunk. he knows what happened. ”

Minimum wage

As revealed by The Sun, Robinho would otherwise join Santos for a symbolic monthly salary of 1,500 Brazilian reals or 227 euros, which is a little more than the minimum wage in Brazil. Robinho has thus fallen from the monthly salary of 700,000 euros to the Brazilian minimum, according to the British tabloid.

Otherwise, his salary would increase to 45,000 euros after the probationary period, he would have to play in at least ten matches, depending on his performances.
