With AP Photos.Former AC Milan and Real Madrid striker Robinho was sentenced to nine years in jail by a court in Milan on charges of sexual assault following an incident in 2013, Italian news agency ANSA reported Thursday.

A Milan court ruled that Robinho and five other Brazilians assaulted the woman, who was 22 at the time, after plying her with alcohol in a nightclub. The married forward along with five other men have been charged.

A statement has been issued on his Instagram profile, from his lawyers, denying he was involved.

The Brazilian, 33, who is now playing in his homeland with Atletico Mineiro, has vowed to challenge the ruling. 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.
