Dani Alves To Face Trial For Sexual Assault in Spain


August 2, 2023

Former Barcelona and Brazil right back Dani Alves is set to face trial in a Spanish court following investigations into the sexual assault accusations against him.

The 40-year-old has been in custody since he was accused of molesting a young woman in the bathroom of a nightclub in December 2022.

Investigations concluded by the judge showed that there is evidence against Alves of wrongdoing. Although he has denied the accusations and said his accuser consented to what happened.

Alves is expected to remain in jail pending the time when a trial date will be given, which is expected to be later in the year or in 2024.
