“As Much As It Pains Me, Alves And Robinho Must Be Punished” - Coach Dorival Junior

Brazilian football has ended its quiet over the assault convictions of Robinho and Alves, with men's public group mentor Dorival Júnior censuring the players' activities notwithstanding their well established relationship.

The Seleço has broken their silence on the rape cases involving two of its former players after a dubious silence following the sentences handed down in recent days (Robinho's sentence has been confirmed and will take effect in Brazil, while Alves' conviction has not yet been finalized).

Mentor Dorival Junior and his new skipper, Danilo, have stood up interestingly about the instances of two of their previous stars, Robinho and Dani Alves, who were viewed as at fault for assault in 2013 and 2022 separately. The assertion from the Brazilian public group was a hotly anticipated request from different quarters in Brazil, however the tension built with the new conviction of the full-back in Spain and the capture of the previous striker in Brazil on Friday.

"As the mentor of the public group, I have an obligation to stand up," the 61-year-old told a public interview at Wembley Arena just before Friday's well disposed against Britain.

We are going through a difficult time. I'm thinking most importantly of the groups of those included and, most importantly, of the casualties of these occurrences that happen consistently in our nation and all over the planet and which are abruptly not managed, they are hushed on the grounds that individuals have no voice," added the mentor, who trained Robinho at Santos in Brazil.

The previous Genuine Madrid striker was captured on Thursday in Brazil, where he is carrying out a nine-year jail punishment for the 2013 assault of a youthful Albanian lady while playing for AC Milan. The previous Genuine Madrid 'Canarinha' striker scored 28 objectives in 100 appearances, including at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, the 2005 and 2009 Confederations Cups and the 2007 Copa America.

"In the event that there truly was a wrongdoing and it has been demonstrated, it should be rebuffed. However much it torments me to express this about an individual with whom I have consistently had a phenomenal relationship," said the mentor.

"I'm upset for what they should carry on with in their lives from here on out. The best anyone can hope for at this point is to assist them with my requests, that's it," added Dorival Júnior.

Repeating the mentor's feelings, the heads of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) and the Selecao's specialized board of trustees gave a public statement communicating their "fortitude with the survivors of the two fierce wrongdoings carried out by previous players".

Ednaldo Rodrigues, the president of the CBF, said, "It is shameful that any athlete in a Brazilian jersey would feel comfortable committing such perversions," and he wanted "what he has achieved through sport to protect him from any punishment." In a climate where "machismo wins", men must "battle sexual viciousness, however a wide range of savagery".

A three-time World Cup member (2010, 2014 and 2022) and champ of the Copa America in 2007 and 2019 and the Confederations Cup in 2009 and 2013, Alves was condemned in February to four-and-a-half years in jail for the assault of a lady in a Barcelona club in 2022, despite the fact that he is currently free on bail in the wake of serving 14 months in jail as the sentence isn't yet last.

Danilo, the commander of the Brazilian public group, has approached the CBF to complete mindfulness bringing exercises up in Brazilian football to advance "intelligent reasoning" among men. " Particularly for youngsters, where we can advance this intelligent reasoning in a more certifiable manner, imagining ladies' perspective," the Juventus full-back said at one more public interview in the English capital.

Nonetheless, he didn't straightforwardly address the instances of Alves and Robinho. Women in football, including Brazilian internationals Ary Borges and Kerolin, as well as Leila Pereira, president of Palmeiras and Brazil's delegate for the friendly matches against England and Spain (next Tuesday in Madrid), have strongly criticized the Seleço's silence.

"No one is saying anything, yet as a lady here, at the top of the designation, I need to stand up," she told UOL on Thursday. " This is an insult for us all, ladies," Pereira said.
