Full stop,’ the statement read.’With the Spanish court ruling for his conviction, there’s speculation and an attempt to associate my name and my son’s to a matter that is not within our reach any longer.’Alves’ lawyer said the Brazilian has two bank accounts in Spain, one with no balance and the other with €51,000 (£44,000), with a judicial seizure of €50,000 (£43,000).Guardiola claimed last year that her client ‘is broke’ and has a ‘negative bank balance of £17,000’, despite reportedly once having a fortune of £47million.Sport reported that Alves accounts in Brazil have also been blocked due to problems with his ex-wife Dinorah Santana.Alves, however, is expected to receive €9.2 million (£7.9 million) after his tax lawyer Fernando Mota won four cases against Spain’s tax agency.The hearing to determine Alves bail had noted the 40-year-old was set to receive ‘a large sum of money’ back from the treasury, but he has not yet received the funds.

For me, he has died.’Prosecutors for Alves’ case had called for him to receive a nine-year sentence, and argued that he should not be allowed bail due to concerns he could flee Spain to return to Brazil.However, he was handed only half the jail time they wanted, and has now been freed from prison, pending the outcome of his appeal. Alves has always maintained his innocence, insisting that his sexual encounter with the young woman in the nightclub bathroom was consensual.However, he was sacked by Mexican club UNAM Pumas following his arrest 14 months ago.
