Robinho has date with police before Manchester City's Uefa Cup clash

Robinho, the Premier League's most expensive player, is due to report to police this week in connection with an alleged sex assault, just 48 hours before Manchester City face a crucial UEFA Cup tie against FC Copenhagen.

Robinho has to attend a police station on Tuesday under bail conditions imposed in January after the Brazilian's arrest as part of a 'criminal investigation' into the alleged attack in a Leeds nightclub.

Liverpool v MANCHESTER CITY: Dunne dilemma for City boss Hughes

The £32.5million star, who plays for City against Liverpool today, denies any wrongdoing but the ongoing case is an unwelcome distraction for City and under-fire boss Mark Hughes.

The club are mid-table in the Premier League and were held to a 2-2 draw in their UEFA Cup first-leg tie in Denmark.

Defender Micah Richards, 20, was arrested by appointment at a police station earlier this month after an alleged assault on an 18-year-old man in Greater Manchester on Christmas Eve. He was bailed until April.
