First Footage Of Ronaldinho Playing Prison Futsal Has Been Released

Footage of Ronaldinho playing futsal during his time in a Paraguayan prison has been revealed and he's absolutely running the show.

The Brazilian legend is currently serving time behind bars for attempting to enter the country with fake documentation including a doctored passport.

But the prison he's been sent to are currently hosting their bi-annual futsal tournament and although he's not featured in the tournament, the World Cup winner has got involved in a game.


He was invited to play a game by other inmates at Agrupacion Especializada, scoring five and assisting six in an 11-2 win.

It's safe to say that any captains in the tournament will be looking to recruit Ronaldinho before the tournament begins on Monday.

There will be one catch should he feature in the tournament, and it's that he cannot score according to Hoy per FourFourTwo.

Hoy per Globoesporte also stated that the 39-year-old started his week behind bars rather dejected.

However, he has come around in recent days and begun to adapt to his life in jail.

Images surfaced earlier this week of the former Ballon d'Or winner drinking and signing shirts for fellow inmates.

You have to wonder what else will be revealed as Ronaldinho's time in jail rolls on.
