Dani Alves, the Brazillian soccer superstar, was recently arrested by the Catalan Police over charges of sexual assault. The former FC Barcelona fullback was arrested by the Catalan Police after a 23-year-old woman alleged that Alves raped her in a nightclub on the night of December 30th, 2022.
Alves has played for teams like FC Barcelona, Juventus, PSG and recently represented the Brazil national team at the Fifa World Cup. He represented Club Universidad Nacional of the Liga MX in Mexico popularly known as Pumas. The Mexican club sacked Alves and terminated his contract soon after he was arrested in the alleged sexual assault case.
Dani Alves allegedly lied about his contract to a judge
Alves was recently presented before a judge of the Catalonia Higher Court of Justice regarding the sexual assault case but was reportedly caught lying by the judge. He was asked about his salary at the PUMAS which he said was €30,000 per month. However, the judge who already had a copy of his contract called him out for his lie and exposed his real salary to be €300,000

She wrote: “I have lost the only two pillars of my life. Have a little empathy, instead of looking for news in other people’s pain, thank you. My mother passed away a week ago. I have barely started to realize that she is no longer here and then they already start to torment me with my husband’s situation.”
She further added:”I ask the media outside my house to please respect my privacy at this time”
She urged the media to show some respect towards her and not intrude on her privacy in this moment of grief. We hope that the media leaves her in peace in this traumatic period and that justice prevails.
