VILLARREAL’S Portuguese defender Ruben Semedo has been charged with offences including attempted murder, robbery and illegal possession of weapons, and a judge ordered him to be held in custody without bail.

Semedo, 23, was arrested on Tuesday for his alleged involvement with others in holding a man who they threatened with a gun, according to media reports.

“The judge charged the footballer with crimes of attempted homicide, assault, threats, illegal detention, illicit possession of firearms and violent robbery,” the Valencia court said in a statement on Thursday.

Semedo’s agent, Catio Balde, told Portuguese television network TSF on Wednesday that his client had been tricked.

“Ruben was a victim of fraud, a large-scale swindle, probably of a financial nature,” Balde said.

EPL news 2021, Frank Lampard sacked, Chelsea FC manager, Thomas Tuchel, replacement, fired, Premier League results

Published

Frank Lampard was summoned to breakfast with two Chelsea chiefs before being told he had been sacked in a meeting which lasted 30 minutes, according to reports.

Despite briefly topping the table at the start of December, Chelsea have been in poor form ever since and find themselves down in ninth place in the Premier League, 11 points off leaders Manchester United.

His 13 years at the club as a player bought him more time in the job that most of his predecessors under owner Roman Abramovich, but the failure to get his $386m signings playing ultimately proved a price too costly for him.

German Thomas Tuchel is to replace him, with Chelsea keen to get in a coach who speaks the same language as big-money signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, who are both Germany internationals.
