Just six days after returning to the club, Robinho and Santos announced, this Friday, the suspension of the contract. At issue is the alleged violation process that the former Brazilian international is facing with the Italian Justice, for allegedly sexually abusing a young Albanian woman on January 22, 2013, in Milan.
«Santos Futebol Clube and athlete Robinho report that, by mutual agreement, they decided to suspend the validity of the contract signed on October 10 so that the player can concentrate exclusively on his defense in the process that is going on in Italy», reads in the note released by the São Paulo club.
