Former AC Milan, Manchester City forward Robinho senteced to nine years for sexual assault
"All legal steps are already being taken regarding this decision in the first instance".
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.
According to Italian wire service ANSA, the 33-year-old Brazilian, who now plays for Atletico Mineiro in his native country, was convicted, along with five others, of gang-raping a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a Milan nightclub in January 2013.
Robinho, whose full name is Robson de Souza, is now in his native Brazil, where he plays for Atletico Mineiro, which are based in Belo Horizonte. The married forward along with five other men have been charged.
Robinho has protested his innocence and announced he will appeal after reportedly being sentenced to nine years in prison for rape. Even if the former Milan player loses the appeal, he would still have to extradited to serve prison time in Italy. However, Brazil does not allow for the extradition of its own citizens, meaning he would only risk arrest and deportation if he was stopped in a third country.

In 2014, Robinho issued a statement through lawyers denying the allegations.
Beginning his career at Santos, Robinho joined Real Madrid in 2005, stayed for three years and won two La Liga titles before moving to Manchester City.
He then went on loan to Brazilian side Santos, before joining Milan.
