Danilo sentenced to prison

Udinese defender Danilo has been found guilty of racist abuse and been sentenced to a year in prison by a court in Brazil.

Danilo, 28, was on trial after being caught by a television camera spitting in the face of Atletico Paranaense player Manoel and calling him "macaco" - monkey in the Portuguese language - when playing for Palmeiras in 2010.

He later publicly admitted that he offended and spat at the opponent who reported the matter to a local police station immediately after the game.

The Sao Paolo Criminal Court ruled on the case on Wednesday and handed the sentence to the former Paulista youth product.

However, it is expected that the punishment will be reduced to a €127,000 fine on appeal.

Danilo has been with the Stadio Friuli side since 2011 and has made 74 appearances for the club, scoring four goals.
