In other football news, former Real Madrid and Manchester City striker, Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison for rape.

Specifically, the sentence relates to an incident in 2013.

Robinho was part of a group that gang-raped a 23-year-old Albanian woman at the Sio Cafe nightclub and was originally sentenced in 2017, but his appeal process with the Italian courts have been ongoing ever since.

Meanwhile, the Court of Cassation in Rome rejected an appeal from the former Brazil international and Ricardo Falco; a friend of the former player, relating to the incident, which occurred in 2013.
