Ronaldinho is in custody and could be jailed for 6 months

The Paraguayan Interior Ministry said on Tuesday, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto were arrested at Resort Yacht & Golf Club Paraguayo today. Their passports are of Paraguay nationality, while their home country is actually Brazil.

The Ronaldinho brothers remained in custody at the hotel until the official Paraguayan authorities made an official announcement. Ronaldinho arrived in Paraguay at the invitation of casino magnate Nelson Belotti. As planned, he will participate in a number of events with fans and local officials.

Ronaldinho does not currently have a Brazilian passport for failing to enforce a penalty for violating environmental laws in 2018. Former Barca star and brother were convicted of illegally building a pier on Lake Guaiba in 2015, which is considered a permanent reserve. The penalty forced Ronaldinho to pay $ 8.5 million and after the former player refused to pay, the Brazilian Court decided to stop him from leaving the country.

No Brazilian passport, but Ronaldinho still plays the role of ambassador of the country on tourism in September 2019. “Tourism is very important in creating jobs and improving the image of Brazil on an international level,” Ronaldinho said at the launch as an ambassador.

Ronaldinho has had illustrious careers in South America and Europe, where he won the Champions League, La Liga, Serie A and the Copa Libertadores. The 39-year-old former player also won many individual titles, including the 2005 Golden Ball, FIFA 2004 and 2005 Best Player. With Brazil, he won the 2002 World Cup and the 1999 Copa America.

Ronaldinho could be jailed for six months

Former Brazilian soccer player Ronaldinho faces the risk of being jailed during Paraguay investigating the crime of using a fake passport.

Paraguayan police arrested Ronaldinho and his brother Assis on March 6. The group pleaded for the two to try to reach home detention results, but on March 8, Judge Clara Ruiz Diaz decided that the detention could last for up to six months.

According to O’Globo, Ronaldinho and his brother were held at Agrupacion Especializada prison. This place has many notorious criminals. The former chairman and vice president of the football association Asuncion is also imprisoned here for money laundering and illegal enrichment.

In the detention area, Ronaldinho and his brother were in a separate room. They were given blankets, soaps and insecticides. The couple did not use prison food, but were provided by a law team.

Mourinho: ‘My future does not lie in Italy’

Jose Mourinho has denied the possibility of returning to Italy in the case of a return as a coach.

In the summer, he has been linked with Juventus, Inter or Napoli, but has not yet returned to the coach seat. Answering TV program Tiki Taka on 29/9, Mourinho also affirmed: “My future? I don’t think it lies in Italy”.

After winning a La Liga and a King’s Cup in three years leading Real, Mourinho returned to Chelsea to win an English Premier League. After this period, his career began to cause controversy with a series of incidents at Chelsea and Man Utd. Since being sacked by Man Utd in December 2018, Mourinho has appeared more as a commentator.

Peter Kenyon: ‘Man Utd was wrong to dismiss Mourinho’

Former Manchester United CEO Peter Kenyon believes Jose Mourinho is still a top-class coach.

“If you give me the job of leading a big team and need to appoint a coach, the first person I think of is Jose Mourinho,” Kenyon said on September 26, on the sidelines of the World Football Summit. “He is intelligent, fit and very experienced. He is not out of date. I just think he needs to find a suitable club. I am sure you will see Mourinho working for a big club.” .

Mourinho has successfully led Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real. But when he arrived at Old Trafford, he could not meet the club’s expectations and was fired in December 2018.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer helped Man Utd win consecutively during his time as interim manager, after Mourinho was fired. However, the Old Trafford team leveled off afterwards. This season, through the first six matches in the Premier League, Man Utd are sixth with two wins, two draws and two losses.

Kenyon said Mourinho was good enough to help Man Utd regain glory on the condition that he must be told how the club works behind the scenes.

Arsenal midfielder replaced Pogba in France

France coach Didier Deschamps called Matteo Guendouzi to replace Paul Pogba in the rally.

Pogba lost the opportunity to play due to an ankle injury in the recent match of Man Utd (1-1 draw on Southampton’s field in Round 4 of the Premier League). Coach Deschamps decided to put his trust in Guendouzi, the midfielder who is performing at Arsenal.

This is the first time Guendouzi has been called up to France. The 20-year-old star will have the opportunity to debut against Albania or Andorra within the next week. “I was only about to take a nap for about 10 minutes when someone knocked on the door to the room, saying ‘You have to get up now, to return to the national team.”

Guendouzi has been an important part of Arsenal since the beginning of this season. After the Tottenham 2-2 draw, he received many compliments from fans and experts.

Thanks to the performance of players like Guendouzi, Arsenal are ranked fifth in the Premier League. They only lost to the Liverpool candidate, drew against Tottenham and won the remaining two matches.

In Group H qualifying Euro 2020, France is leading thanks to goal difference. They have the same nine points with Turkey and Iceland after four games: three wins and one draw.

The top two teams in each group will have tickets to the final round. The two matches against Albania and Andorra have important implications for France in “cutting off” Turkey and Iceland.

As the 2018 World Cup champion, France is well positioned and well prepared to be crowned the Euro. New factors like Guendouzi are expected to make a positive contribution to this process.
