The footballer Dani Alves has written a letter to his ex-wife Joana Sanz from the Brians 2 prison, where he is in prison accused of raping a 23-year-old girl in the bathroom of the Sutton nightclub in Barcelona.

In the letter, to which the ‘Y ahora Sonsoles’ program has had access, the footballer assures that he “regrets” Sanz’s decision to separate after eight years of relationship and “hopes” that life “gives them another opportunity” .

“It was almost eight years of a lot of love, affection, respect and mutual care. Especially the last few years with you, everything seems easier and more pleasant. You and my children, Dani Filho and Victoria, were the best things that happened to me in my life. “, the letter begins.

Alves assures the young woman that he “understands” the pain caused by “the unfair situation” they are experiencing and “understands” that he has not been able to withstand the pressure. “The facts of which they accuse me are alien to me and to the values ​​that have guided my life: love, respect and effort,” she asserts.

The former Barça player was arrested on January 20 and the events of which he is accused allegedly took place on December 30 of last year. Since then, he has been in pretrial detention without bail awaiting trial.

“I will continue fighting as I have always done, believing in myself with the support and confidence of those who know who I really am: I will fight until the end with the unconditional love of my children, my parents and those who continue to be by my side, to soon prove my innocence to the whole world”, sentenced in the same letter.
