  • Striker Robinho handed nine years prison sentence for rape Report

It said: "On the news involving striker Robinho, in fact that happened a few years ago, we clarified that he already defended himself against the charges, saying he had no participation in the episode".

Former Manchester City forward Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison for sexual assault.

It added that "all legal steps" were "already being taken regarding this decision".

The 33-year-old is now playing for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.

Though he has been found guilty, the Italian justice system allows for several levels of appeal, which means the verdict is essentially put on hold.

Prosecutors had requested jail terms of 10 years, reported the ANSA news agency, and one of Robinho's alleged friends, Ricardo Falco, another Brazilian, was sentenced to nine years.

In 2014, Robinho issued a statement through lawyers denying the allegations. Brazil does not extradite its own citizens when they are sentenced in other countries.

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

After a short stint at China Robinho moved to Belo Horizonte, where he has become a key part of Atletico's first team over the past two seasons alongside fellow City old boy Jo.

He played more than 40 games for Manchester City between 2008 and 2010 after signing from Real Madrid for £32.5m - at the time making him the most expensive player in British football.

Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault while at City in 2009, but was later cleared.
