Brazil footballer ‘in soup’ over alleged sexual assault

Dani Alves

Brazillian footballer Dani Alves has been detained in Spain on suspicion of sexual assault, according to the police. 

Alves has strenuously denied the accusations, stating the following.

“Yes, I was in that place, with more people, enjoying myself. And people who know me know that I love to dance. I was dancing and enjoying myself without invading the space of others.”

“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.”
