The 36-year-old returned to Santos for a third spell this season after signing a five-month deal this week.

The news did not sit well with the public in Brazil due to an Italian court sentencing Robinho to nine years in prison after he was convicted of taking part in the rape of 22-year-old woman in 2013.

As a result, the Brazilian top-flight club have decided to suspended the player's contract in order for him to concentrate on the case

Club statement:

"Santos Football Club and Robinho, by mutual consent, have resolved to suspend the contract signed on Oct. 10 in order for the player to concentrate exclusively on his defence in the ongoing case in Italy."
