On Friday, the Barcelona court of first instance decided to grant the prosecutor’s request and take former Catalan club player Dani Alves into custody pending investigation. The 39-year-old Brazilian is accused of sexual harassment.
According to Marca, the court denied Alves bail.
In December, it became known that one of the visitors to a nightclub in Barcelona went to the police with a statement that Alves put his hands under his underwear without his consent and accused him of sexual harassment. Alves himself denied everything.
Dani Alves is the most successful footballer in history with 43 trophies.
