Catalonia’s top court announced on Tuesday that the former Barcelona and Brazil defender Dani Alves is the subject of an investigation into claims that he sexually assaulted a woman in a nightclub in Spain last month. Alves denies his guilt.

According to Spanish media, Alves was accused by a lady of touching her inappropriately and trying to roam his hands underneath her clothes at a nightclub in late December 2022 while she was out with friends.

Alves admitted to being at the club with other people in an interview with Antena 3 last week, but he denied engaging in any such behavior. “I was dancing and having a good time without invading anyone’s space,” he said. “I don’t know who this lady is. How could I do that to a woman? No.”

Alves is among the most accomplished footballers of his time, having won national championships in France, Italy, and Spain. With Barcelona, he added three Champions League championships.
