El Santos brasileño y el atacante internacional Robson de Souza ‘Robinho’ rompieron este viernes su contrato por la condena que pesa sobre el jugador por una supuesta violación grupal cometida en 2013, cuando jugaba para el Milan. 

"The Santos Fútbol Club and the athlete Robinho report that, by mutual agreement, they resolved to suspend the validity of the contract signed on the last day of October 10 so that the player can concentrate exclusively on his defense in the process that takes place in Italy," he announced in Twitter the São Paulo club.

"With a lot of sadness in my heart, I tell you that I made the decision together with the president [of Santos] to suspend my contract at this troubled moment in my life," said the player in a separate video.

Since the announcement of the hiring, Santos was harshly questioned by sectors of his fans, the press and feminist groups who demanded the hiring of the former Real Madrid striker for allegedly having raped a young woman in her twenties with a group of friends at a night club of Milan

The pressures against the 36-year-old attacker, who appealed the ruling and defends his innocence, increased throughout the week.

So much so that this Friday a good part of the Peixe sponsors threatened to break or not renew the sponsorship contracts if Robinho was still at the club.
