FC Barcelona and Brazil Icon, Dani Alves is in police custody following an allegation made against him in December 2022.
The experienced Brazil international and former Barcelona full-back Dani Alves has been detained in Catalonia on suspicion of sexual assault.
Following an accusation made against him on December 30, 2022, the 39-year-old defender was taken into custody.
On Friday morning, Alves appeared at the Mossos d’Esquadra de Les Corts police station in Barcelona to refute the claims.
The South American will now be transported to Barcelona’s Ciutat de la Justicia, where he will attend a court proceeding and a judge will make a decision regarding his interim status while the case is being examined.
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.”
