  • Former Manchester City star Robinho sentenced to nine years in prison

Former Milan and Manchester City striker Robinho has been found guilty of rape in a Milanese disco in 2013 and given a nine-year sentence.

"All legal steps are already being taken regarding this decision in the first instance".

He is said to have attacked a 22-year-old Albanian woman along with five other men.

Former Real Madrid and Manchester City star Robinho is now playing in his homeland for Atletico Mineiro.

Robinho has protested his innocence and announced he will appeal after reportedly being sentenced to nine years in prison for rape.

It was reported that Robinho has the right to two appeals in Italy and the sentence will not be enforced until that process has been completed, which could mean extradition proceedings being activated.

The suspect was also wounded, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We saw two cops running toward Macy's", she said . Family members were apparently able to disarm the suspect and Bloomington police took the suspect into custody.

"We would like to clarify that he has already defended himself against the accusations, affirming that he did not participate in the episode", said a statement posted on Robinho's Instagram feed.

Robinho began his career with Santos before leaving Brazil in 2005 for a three-year spell with Madrid.

However, he failed to live up to expectations at City and left the club after one and a half seasons, joining Santos on loan before making a permanent move to Milan.

Robino played at AC Milan later after 16 months where he won the Serie A title with players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano.

He now plies his trade back in his homeland with Atletico Mineiro.
