back/(dpa) Former Brazilian international Dani Alves has been jailed for four years and six months. A court in Barcelona convicted Alves of rape on Thursday.

A young woman reported Alves for sexual aggression. The then 23-year-old accused Alves of forcing her to have sex in a nightclub in Barcelona on December 30, 2022. Alves now has to pay the woman 150,000 euros in compensation.

At the trial, the ex-Barça professional tearfully denied the allegations. “She didn’t tell me that she didn’t want to,” said the 40-year-old Brazilian at the end of the third and final day of the trial on Wednesday evening in front of the regional court in Barcelona.

The woman accusing Alves was questioned at the start of the trial in camera to protect her identity. The three-day criminal trial heard from more than two dozen witnesses and experts. Two of the young woman’s companions as well as police officers, doctors and nightclub employees said that the young woman was “in shock” after the incident.

Dani Alves has been in custody since January last year. Before his arrest, he had been playing for the UNAM Pumas club in Mexico.
