Robinho causes the departure of a sponsor 

Robinho’s arrival at Santos was not to Orthoprid’s liking. The sponsor of the Brazilian club broke his contract so as not to be associated with the player, sentenced in Italy in 2017 for gang rape.

Robinho’s return to Santos five years after his last stint is definitely talked about. After the information concerning the derisory monthly salary (230 €) that the 37-year-old player would receive, it is now the unceremonious departure of a club sponsor that is causing a stir. Orthopride, a company operating in the aesthetic orthodontics sector, has thus decided to terminate its contract early, not wanting to be associated with a player condemned by the Italian justice for “rape in assembly”, three years ago.

At the time, the one who was an AC Milan player had been convicted of raping a young woman. Not being in Italy, since returned to Brazil under the colors of Atlético Mineiro, Robinho has never set foot in Italy. Faced with this persistent doubt, Orthopride therefore decided to stop its contract. In comments reported by Globo Esporte, the brand director indicated that this decision was taken “out of respect for all women who use (their) products.” “
