Mexican team Pumas announced yesterday, Friday, the immediate termination of the contract with Dani Alves after accusations against him of assaulting a 23-year-old woman in a Barcelona nightclub on December 30 last year.
And the Spanish newspaper Marca reported that the court decided to arrest Dani Alves and put him in jail a few days after the initiation of the case, although no evidence against him has yet appeared.
She attributed the speed of Alves’ arrest to the fact that he had dual Spanish and Brazilian citizenship, in addition to his residency in Mexico, as well as his great financial ability, which allows him to manipulate the evidence in the case.
