It added: "All legal steps are now being taken with regards to this decision by a court of first instance".

Former Milan and Manchester City striker Robinho has been found guilty of rape in a Milanese disco in 2013 and given a nine-year sentence.

The 33-year old was found guilty of assaulting a 22-year old lady he met in a Milan bar along with 5 other men when he still played for AC Milan in 2013.

Robinho, 33, who now plays with Atl├ętico Mineiro in Brazil, pleaded not guilty via his lawyer and did not appear at any of the court hearings in northern Italy.

The Brazilian has the right of appeal and the sentence will not be enforced until that process has been completed, according to Sky Sports.

For the turkey cranberry salads, it applies to those sold in California , Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Trader Joe's addressed the recall on their website, saying all affected product on their shelves have been destroyed.

Robinho was also accused of sexual assault in London in 2009 while at Manchester City but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Even if the former Milan player loses the appeal, he would still have to extradited to serve prison time in Italy. The married forward along with five other men have been charged.

A statement on the Brazilian's Instagram feed read: "We would like to clarify that he has already defended himself against the accusations, affirming that he did not participate in the episode".

A lack of discipline, however, began to dog Robinho, and he was soon returning to Santos before a spell in Italy where the assault took place.

At the end of the season, he moved to AC Milan where he was joined by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and later Antonio Cassano en route to winning Serie A.

He is now back in Brazil with Atletico Mineiro.
