Amantino Mancini has been sentenced to two years and eight months in jail after being found guilty of sexual assault by an Italian court, according to ANSA.
The Atletico Mineiro winger carried out the assault on the young Brazilian woman at his apartment in Milan on the night of December 8 of last year.

Mancini’s friend Gerardo Eugenio do Nascimento was sentenced to 10 months in prison for trying to coerce the victim into not reporting the assault to police.
Mancini, who maintained his innocence throughout the trial and insisted that the sexual intercourse had been consensual, had met the woman at a party hosted by his compatriot and then AC Milan team-mate Ronaldinho.
The 31-year-old Mancini enjoyed a successful five-year spell at Roma before joining Inter in 2008. However, he failed to reproduce his best form for the Nerazzurri and was loaned out to city rivals AC Milan last year before eventually returning to Brazil to rejoin Mineiro in January.[/font]
