Ruben Semedo bail rejected

Villarreal defender Ruben Semedo was denied bail and will remain in jail until his trial for alleged attempted murder.

The 23-year-old was arrested last month for allegedly ‘tying up, hitting and holding an individual inside his house’ in the district of Valencia.

The complainant alleges that he was locked in a room after being immobilised, while the accused stole his keys, broke into his apartment and carried out large scale theft, with gunshots also said to be involved to intimidate the individual.

The defender has now been suspended without pay by Villarreal and has now had his latest application for bail thrown out.

The Portugal international’s run-in with the law made headlines in Spain earlier this year after allegedly carrying a firearm at a nightclub in Valencia in November and smashing a man over the head with a glass bottle in separate incidents.

Semedo joined Villarreal from Sporting CP in the summer for €14m but has played only four league games due to his season being disrupted by injuries.
