The plot gets more complicated. Dani Alves, who is accused of raping a girl in Barcelona at the end of December, continues to maintain his innocence and claim that the relationship was consensual. But judging by the new evidence, there is very little chance that the footballer will come out of it.
The complainant's cousin described the sequence of events at that Barcelona club, where the rape allegedly took place: "They were dancing. She told me he insisted on leaving, she asked him where and he didn't respond. She went with him voluntarily.
"She thought they were going to talk and I said, 'Go get it sorted out with him, it's going to be fine.' It was 15 or 20 minutes, Danny came back first. He had a bad face of 'I did a lot of damage.'"

Earlier this week, it was the complainant herself, whose testimony was revealed in the Spanish media: "He came up to me and said: 'Don't you know who I am?' and I said 'no.' He took my hand and put it on the lower part of his body. I started to get really scared and thought: 'What if he puts something in my drink? What if he does something to my girlfriend?'"

The complainant went on to describe how he took him to a small bathroom at the same club, where it all happened: "I remember him lifting my dress and sitting me on it. I told him, 'I can't,' and he started saying a lot of things. He grabbed me by the hair and brought me to my knees. I was very scared. I still see that scene in my head."
