Robinho arrested for sexual assault
AWOL Brazilian talks to police on return to UK
Manchester City star Robinho has been arrested by police investigating an alleged rape at a Leeds nightclub. Quite humorously, police had originally intended to interview the Brazil international away from prying eyes at City’s Tenerife training ground, which we all know he disappeared from.
Robinho’s spokesman, Chris Nathaniel said: “[Robinho] strenuously denies any allegation of wrongdoing or criminality and is happy to co-operate with the police if further required.” The ex-Real Madrid player has been released on bail.
I must admit, when I read on The Spoiler that Robinho had been partying in Space and then read this shortly afterwards I did weigh up the legal implications of a satirical pondering of Robinho’s whereabouts at the time of the attack. Glad I thought better of it now!
