Alves has refuted the claims leveled against him following a trip to a nightclub in Barcelona, saying: “Yes, I was there, with more people, having fun. And those who know me well understand that I enjoy dancing. Without encroaching on anyone else’s territory, I was dancing and having fun.

“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.”
