Argentine footballer Diego Alberto Trotta filmed brutally attacking his ex [Video]

Argentine footballer Diego Alberto Trotta has been jailed for six months after his brutal attack on his ex-girlfriend was caught on film by CCTV cameras.

Playing in the fourth tier of Argentine football for Independiente de Neuquén, Trotta was filmed dragging her by the hair and beating her up after ambushing her in the streets.

Trotta, 36, played in Spain’s Segunda Division for several seasons with Alaves, Elche and Albacete, but he returned to his native Argentina six years ago.

His lawyer offered no defence for the attack in court and the veteran professional footballer was handed a six month jail sentence.
