Also, the former World Player of the Year owes 7.8 million reais to other creditors. They have also taken action to recover their money.
According to reports, authorities have seized Ronaldinho’s passport till the time all the cases are resolved.
However, Ronaldinho’s lawyer denied the player’s assets were under restriction.
