Football: convicted of rape, Dani Alves stripped of his status as FC Barcelona legend

FC Barcelona reacted to the conviction of Dani Alves by removing all mention of the Brazilian right-back from its official page dedicated to the club's legends. This symbolic step was carried out as soon as the conviction for sexual assault was pronounced. However, the club clarified that the images showing Daniel Alves with the victorious Champions League team in Berlin in 2015 will remain, because he was part of that team and it would therefore be inappropriate to remove him from it.

Despite this legal decision and the resulting consequences, Daniel Alves, who was among the most successful players in the history of football, intends to appeal his conviction. In addition to the prison sentence, Daniel Alves was ordered to pay a fine of 150,000 euros to the victim and to maintain a distance of nine and a half years from her. He will also be subject to five years of supervised release after serving his sentence.

This conviction was handed down despite the fact that the sentence was lower than the prosecution's requirements, which requested nine years in prison for the former Paris Saint-Germain player.

Since its founding in 1899, FC Barcelona has honored 102 players as club legends. Among them are illustrious names such as Xavi, the team's current coach, as well as Lionel Messi, a fixture. The latest entrants into the FC Barcelona “pantheon” are Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, now alongside the Argentine star at Inter Miami.
