Ronaldinho Passport Seized As Court Finds £5 In His Bank Account

A Brazilian judge has ordered former Brazilian World Cup great,  Ronaldinho’s passport to be confiscated as the former Barcelona forward has failed to pay off his £1.7 million debt

. In 2015, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis were fined for environmental damage after they built a property with a fishing platform without the required permits in Porto Alegre. Ronaldinho and his brother have yet to pay the fine which has reached a total of £1.7m.

The Rio Grande do Sul court has now ordered the seizure of Ronaldinho’s passport and attempted to reclaim some of the debt but found just £5 in his bank account. The Brazilian already has dual nationality as he was granted a Spanish passport during his time at Barcelona in 2007.

In January, Ronaldinho confirmed his retirement from football, although he had not played for a professional team since leaving Brazilian side Fluminense in July 2015. During his career, Ronaldinho was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005 and helped Barcelona win two La Liga titles as well as the Champions League.
