The Spanish police transfer Dani Alves to the detention center: the Brazilian soccer player is suspected of rape (Reuters)
"Dani Alves is completely broken" after his wife's public announcement that she plans to divorce him, according to Spain.
Last week, Joana Sanz published a letter on her Instagram account addressed to Alves, in which she declares her intention to divorce him, but not to abandon him, following the suspicions that a young woman was raped in a nightclub in Barcelona.
A team from the TV show "Cuatro al día" went to the prison where Alves is staying, awaiting his rape trial.
According to the report, "sources around Alves claim that he is completely broken, and very nervous" following his wife's message: "Until a few days ago, he shared a cell with another person, but now he is alone, and does not want to leave his cell, just wants to stay there, closed himself.
Another public humiliation.

"Since he entered prison, Alves stated to his fellow inmates that his wife supports him, stays by his side, supports him and gives him strength. Now this message has broken him, and there are days when he does not eat anything. He did not expect this" Joanna Sanz's message came
three Months after Alves was arrested on suspicion of rape.
It should be noted that in the past, when he asked to be released on bail, his wife was a reason for hope for him, because of her Spanish citizenship, and the claim that he would stay by her side, under her supervision.
"Juana is the only connection that Alves has to Spain," it is explained, "all his family in Brazil, all his businesses in Brazil, she is his anchor in the country where he is imprisoned. This fact is surely also known to the judges. But what hurts Danny is not only the damage, or The fact that she divorced him - but it hurts him that she did it publicly."
As I recall, Alves claims that he did not rape the woman, but that he had consensual sex with her, and according to him, at first he denied that he was with her at all because he did not want to embarrass his wife in public - and admitted that he had sex with her only after actual evidence was found with his DNA.
Saenz, for her part, claimed that she was pained to find out that "it broke me to find out that I didn't know this person", and claimed that "I lost the rock of my life".
After the visit to the prison, she stated that "she does not intend to abandon him in the lowest moments of his life", but as mentioned, last week she announced her intention to divorce.
