Dani Alves was sentenced to 4 years and 6 months in prison for sexual assault . After the sentence in Brazil there were various positions taken by the green and gold people who want to distance themselves from the former footballer for what he committed. As reported by Globo Esporte in the last few hours, precisely in light of this, his statue created by the artist Leo Santana which shows the player, life-size, wearing the Seleção shirt and a ball at his feet, has been vandalized again.

The first time it happened last September 2023 when the first rumors about a now announced sentence immediately enraged the citizens of Juazeiro, his hometown. First they asked the mayor to remove that statue dedicated to the defender and inaugurated in 2020 and then deface it. During the night, some residents of the area covered the player's head with a black garbage bag and then wrapped it with duct tape. In this case, however , Dani Alves' face was covered in white paint.

A clear and important position that further highlights the embarrassment that this affair has created in Brazil. Nobody would have ever expected something like this. But they are not the only ones who have had this reaction. Bahia, the club where Dani Alves became a professional, has removed the picture of the player posted on one of the walls of the headquarters, next to the historic athletes of the Brazilian team. Barcelona also recently removed him from the club's 'Legends' list before putting him back at the behest of the fans.

In fact, many have asked us to reflect so that we can distinguish the man from the footballer after what we have seen in his career. But it's not easy for everyone to accept all this since they felt betrayed by their idol. In this case the statue was defaced as yet another warning to the mayor of Juazeiro so that it is finally removed from the city and Dani Alves is no longer recognized as the pride of the city. Therefore, after the sentence, Dani Alves' career seems to have vanished into thin air as did his image.
