This follows reports of a split from his wife, Joana Sanz, who announced the separation via Instagram.
According to a report by Spanish news outlet, Cuatro al dia, Alves had been telling fellow inmates that his wife loved him and was supporting him amid the serious sexual assault allegations.
However, following the announcement of the separation, the player is said to be “completely devastated and very nervous.”
