One of the leading football players of Spartak Promes was arrested in Dubai

One of the leading football players of the Moscow “Spartak”, the Dutchman Quincy Promes, was arrested in Dubai at the request of the prosecutor’s office of the Netherlands.

Promes was sentenced in absentia to 7.5 years in prison on charges of drug smuggling and stabbing his cousin.

The Dutch prosecutor’s office will demand the football player’s extradition. The agency called his arrest “the result of constructive cooperation with the authorities of the United Arab Emirates.”

On February 29, Quincy Promes was detained in the UAE when he tried to fly to Russia together with “Spartak” after the team’s training session. The reason for the detention was a car accident. On March 14, Promes was fined by the court, but after that he was immediately arrested at the request of the Netherlands.

Quincy Promes is one of the best legionnaires in the history of the Russian Football Premier League. In 2014, Spartak Moscow signed a four-year contract with the Dutchman, who was then 22 years old, and paid 10 million euros for him. In 2017, with Promes as part of Spartak, he won the first gold medals in 16 years. The football player himself became the best player of the championship according to the “goal+pass” system. Playing for “Spartak”, Promes entered the list of the top 25 scorers of the Russian championship in his entire history.

In August 2018, the player was sold to the Spanish “Seville” for 21 million euros – this became a transfer record for “Spartak”. A year later, Promes returned to the Netherlands, where he played for Ajax Amsterdam. In July 2020, the football player quarreled with his cousin at a family party held at his home, and in the ensuing scuffle he stabbed him several times. The player was arrested, but later released as a suspect.

After that, Promes left for Russia and again signed a contract with Moscow Spartak.

In 2022, it became known that the football player was suspected of smuggling more than 1,300 kilograms of cocaine through Belgium.
