Robinho All Set To Join The Club Of Sivasspor

Robinho de Souza who is more commonly known as “Robinho” is expected to join the club of Sivasspor. In spite of the potential jail term which is hanging over the lad in the court of Italy, the former star of Brazil is determined to take his career ahead to Turkey with the Sivasspor Club. Robinho entered into an agreement with the Sivasspor to join the club and this news has announced the side of Turkish Super Lig.

The former forward of Manchester City and Real Madrid was recently released by the club of Atletico Mineiro when his contract with the club expired at the last month’s end. The inclusion of Robinho was confirmed by the official website of Sivasspor which read that “The star Brazilian striker Robinho de Souza, whom we have kept watching for a very long time and with whom we have consented to sign the contract, will be in Sivasspor by tomorrow.” “After the main and final negotiations with us, he will sign a formal and official contract.”

For how much time the contract will last is still not clear as there is no official announcement made by the Sivasspor regarding the duration of the contract. Currently, Sivasspor is on the 8th position in the table after they won the promotion to the top flight at the last season as the TFF maiden league champions. In the month of December, a court of Milan sentenced Robinho for a term of 9 years in prison for him being an alleged offender of a gang rape whose victim was a 22-year-old woman, 5 other men were also involved in the offense which took place on January 2013. However, Robinho pleaded not guilty to the offense and denied all the charges against him.
