The crude story of the woman who denounced Dani Alves: "I resisted, but he was stronger than me"


The 23-year-old girl who accused the Brazilian soccer player of rape told details of what happened on December 30.

The football world is in shock.

The smile of the player with the most titles in history faded, always identified by the joy that lived on his face and who is now going through the worst days of his life:

Dani Alves was denounced for rape and is being held at the Brians 2 penitentiary, in Barcelona.

Much more can be said about the victim, although little or nothing is known about her life: she 

is immersed in a nightmare and is also in shock due to the traumatic situation she had to experience less than a month ago.

She is a 23-year-old girl, who plucked up her courage and declared what she suffered on the night of December 30 in the bathroom of the Sutton bowling alley in the Spanish city.

This is how Dani Alves came to testify in a court in Barcelona.

AP/Joan Mateu Parra.

She testified on January 2 at the Central Sexual Assault Unit of the Mossos d'Esquadra at the Les Corts police station in Barcelona, ​​just days after the event in question, and

accused the soccer player of beating and raping her.

It all started with a whisper in her ear, whose words she didn't understand.

"She must have said them in Portuguese, 

" she explained in her statement.

So far, nothing that had not been found before.

Later, the Brazilian took the young woman's hand violently to her crotch, to which she refused, and the situation became more tense, although she still couldn't even imagine what would come next.

Moments later, Dani walked a few meters away, next to a door, and asked the girl to come closer.

"I didn't know what was behind it. I thought there would be another VIP area"

, she continued with her story.

What there was was one of the bathrooms of the disco where they were both.

She agreed and, seeing that Dani closed the door immediately after entering, she asked him to let her out.

Unfortunately, it was already late.

The former Barcelona man told her that he could not leave, forced her to tell him that he was her "little whore" and, when she refused, he violently threw her to the ground, hit her, causing injuries to her knee and finally raped her. 

"I resisted, but he was much stronger than me,"

she explained.

Dani Alves, in trouble

As reported by the Spanish press, 

Dani Alves shows contradictions in his statements: 

first he said that he did not know or have had any contact with the complainant, then he commented that he had seen her but that nothing of what the young woman recounted in her statement happened and, Finally, she stated that it was she who jumped on him.

Ney Alves

, Dani's brother, spoke on Telecinco Brasil's 'Fiesta' program and acknowledged that the defendant's family is "powerless in the face of this situation."

At the same time, he said that the lawyer, Miraida Puente Wislon, "is not doing well" and assured that

"we will give our lives, if necessary, so that Dani Alves gets out of this hell."

puts her hands in the fire for him:

"Dani would never, ever, ever do that. Never. I'm telling you that I've known him for 22 years and I was married to him for 10 years."

the meantime, the defender who last passed through Pumas de México, a club that terminated his contract after what happened, is waiting in prison.

A Barcelona judge ordered his admission to prison, without bail, last Friday.

Since then, he has remained in the admission module of the Brians 1 prison in Sant Esteve Sesrovires.

Recent information indicates that he was transferred to the admission module of the Brians 2 prison. There both convicted and pre-trial prisoners live there and it has smaller residential modules that better guarantee their safety and coexistence with the rest of the inmates.

Prison staff are expected to assign him a cell in the next few hours.

His defense works on the procedural strategy to try to get him out on provisional release

, so he is considering filing an appeal against his entry into prison, if necessary, offering to testify again before the judge.

The victim's lawyer is also preparing her strategy, who in her statement last Friday before the judge expressly waived the compensation

that could correspond to him in the event that Alves is convicted of the rape.
