Barcelona and Brazil legend Dani Alves has been ARRESTED under suspicion of sexual assault and the veteran defender is currently in police custody.
Allegations were made against him in December 2022 and now the 39-year-old defender has been taken into custody following an allegation made against him on 30 December 2022.
Alves attended the Mossos d’Esquadra de Les Corts police station in Barcelona on Friday morning to testify against the allegations.
Dani Alves stated:
“Yes, I was in that place, with more people, enjoying myself. And people who know me know that I love to dance. I was dancing and enjoying myself without invading the space of others.
“I don’t know who that lady is. You arrive at a bathroom and you don’t have to ask who’s there. I have never invaded anyone’s space. How am I going to do it with a woman or a girl? No, for God’s sake.”
The defender will now have to attend a court hearing and a judge will rule on his situation while the case is being investigated.
