Ronaldinho is ‘sad’ about his situation after being jailed in Paraguay for using false documents to enter the country. The Barcelona and Brazil legend has been detained since March 5 after he and his brother were caught at their hotel in Paraguay with fake passports and identity cards. Ronaldinho appears to be in high spirits after he took part in a football tournament in the prison last Friday, while reports also claim that he is also willing to sign autographs for other inmates.
Former Paraguay striker Nelson Cuevas has visited Ronaldinho since his arrest and has revealed how the 2004 and 2005 FIFA World Player of the Year is coping. Hopefully, he can get out soon,’ Cuevas told Infobae. ‘He is just sad because of the situation.
‘His lawyers are handling the rest. Hopefully he can get out of there soon.’ Paraguay’s Interior Minister, Euclides Acevedo, had claimed that the facility where Ronaldinho is being held ‘is not a prison’ and suggested the building was ‘almost a hotel’.
