Dani Alves plays his first match for the prison soccer team

Dani Alves played a game on the prison soc­cer team after being arrest­ed for alleged rape in a nightclub.

Brazil inter­na­tion­al Alves has been accused of sex­u­al­ly assault­ing him at his Barcelona night­club on Decem­ber 30.

He was arrest­ed on Jan­u­ary 20 after she revealed to police that a 23-year-old woman was the perpetrator.

He is being held in Briand 2 Prison in Cat­alo­nia, Spain, and is report­ed­ly mak­ing her prison foot­ball debut.

A prison offi­cial told La Van­guardia news­pa­per that “expec­ta­tions were high” because many of the oth­er inmates wor­ship the Barça ace.

The soc­cer play­er is said to have told his fel­low inmates, “I’ll take any­thing.” I left home when I was only 15.”

“I’ve been through some very dif­fi­cult and com­pli­cat­ed sit­u­a­tions so far and I’m sure I’ll get anoth­er pass­ing grade. I’m not afraid of anything.

Alves shares a room with anoth­er Brazil­ian named Coutin­ho, though not his nation­al team-mate.

But Coutin­ho is no stranger to foot­ball, with La Van­guardia report­ing that he once worked as a body­guard for Brazil­ian leg­end Ronaldinho.

The news comes after it was report­ed that Alves had signed auto­graphs for oth­er out­casts while in prison.

The ex-con­vict of Bri­an II showed Telesino a T‑shirt signed by the 39-year-old foot­ball star.

He also revealed how Alves was received in prison and how no one called him a “rapist”.

Accord­ing to reports in Spain, Alves ini­tial­ly denied con­tact­ing his accusers.

In a Span­ish tele­vi­sion inter­view, Alves said, “I don’t know who this woman is.”

“I don’t know her name, I’ve nev­er seen her”

But at a court hear­ing, the foot­baller told the judge that he had con­sen­su­al sex with a woman.

Accord­ing to El Mun­do news­pa­per, a change in his nar­ra­tive was the decid­ing fac­tor in his remand.

CCTV footage released by Span­ish media shows the foot­baller and the alleged vic­tim in a VIP area, then going to the bath­room for 47 seconds.

The woman said she was too scared to leave the bath­room for sev­er­al min­utes after the alleged assault.

When she final­ly opened the door, the foot­baller and his com­pan­ion had left the compound.

She start­ed cry­ing and, com­fort­ed by her friends, called the bounc­er at her club.

The foot­baller’s arrest hit a sec­ond blow just days after his wife, Joana Sanz’s moth­er, died of cancer.

The 29-year-old Span­ish mod­el has lost “two pil­lars of my life” due to her hus­band’s arrest, she said.
