The penitentiary establishment where the Brazilian is and the player’s family quickly denied the rumor. On his Instagram account, Ney Alves, the brother of the former Barça full-back, attacked those who spread this rumor: “You want to see my brother dead. How cruel! My father is over 70 years old. My mother is over 60 years old. You don’t have any family, do you? These pages keep spreading these things. May God have mercy on you.”

The Brazilian Dani Alves has been in detention since January 2023, sentenced to four and a half years in prison for the rape of a young woman in a nightclub, which occurred in December 2022 in Barcelona. “You have already condemned him for the words of a woman who entered the men’s room to do what only she knows. He has already been convicted. Isn’t that enough?” Barcelona prison has had an anti-suicide protocol in place for several weeks due to the mental state of the 40-year-old man, who has been very affected since his sentence. The Brazilian was prosecuted for the rape – “sexual assault with penetration”, in the terms of Spanish justice – of a 23-year-old young woman in the toilets of a nightclub in Barcelona, ​​on the night of December 30 to 31, 2022 .
