After the announcement of the return of the striker, many fans, from different teams, opposed the hiring – Robinho was convicted in Italy for group sexual violence against an Albanian woman, in a case that occurred in 2013.

Hours after the announcement, one of Santos’ sponsors withdrew the partnership with the club in a decision made “out of respect for women”. In a note, Santos explained about the hiring.

“With regard to the process of the athlete Robson de Souza, the Club cannot enter into the merit of the accusation, as the process runs in secrecy of Justice in Italy and above all Santos FC is proud of, in its history, always respecting the fundamental guarantees of the human being, among which, the presumption of innocence and respect for due legal process “, says the document.

“It should also be noted that there is no definitive sentence and the athlete responds in freedom and it will not be Santos FC that will give him an early sentence, prejudging and preventing him from exercising his profession. As a formation club, where the athlete lived his best moments, in which he had several achievements, it would not be our collectivity to turn his back on him and decree a final judgment of value in a process with ongoing resources “, concludes the club.

Unfortunately, we live in the era of cancellations, the culture of internet courts and judgments that are as hasty as they are final, but there is a certainty that Santos FC fans will understand that it is exclusively up to the Justice to carry out the judgment.
