A protective measure was even imposed by the courts, preventing the player from contacting the young woman who accuses him. However, the athlete is free to leave French territory if he needs to.
The athlete, who is also on the Moroccan national team, awaits the next court decisions.
Daniel Alves is arrested
Firstly, with great success on world lawns, the athlete has been locked up since January. The charge is of sexual abuse against a young woman in a nightclub in Spain.
The abuse allegedly occurred in December 2022 in a nightclub in Barcelona.
After denying the accusation, the athlete changed his statement a few times, which made his situation much worse. Thus, the great champion with Barcelona, PSG and the Brazilian team is in prison.
Thus, Daniel Alves remains imprisoned awaiting the next steps of Spanish justice.
Cristiano Ronaldo had his name involved in controversy
Not even the great Portuguese star was far from controversy. In 2018, the Portuguese man was accused by model Kathryn Mayorga of rape.
The case would have occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas, and would only have come to light in 2018. At the time, the model asked for 64 million euros in compensation.
A settlement was made for an amount far less than the claim, and the case was dismissed. However, the athlete saw his name involved in a case of violence against women.

The athlete denied all the facts, and was acquitted on 7 of the 8 charges. In addition to the rape accusations, the athlete faces accusations of attempted rape.
As well as sexual violence, now the athlete hopes that the other cases will be judged.
