FORMER Barcelona and Brazil legend Ronaldinho was arrested last week after allegedly entering Paraguay on a false passport. The 39-year-old, full name Ronaldinho de Assis Moreira, was travelling to the South American country with his brother, who the police also want to speak to. Last week he was arrested in the capital city of Asuncion where he was staying in a hotel. Police had noted that the passports are not on the computer system and appear to be forgeries. They have said that they are also setting up an enquiry as to how the pair were allowed to enter Paraguay with the false documentation.

Ronaldinho played for Barcelona between 2003 and 2008 when he was at the peak of his game, netting 70 goals in 145 appearances, the vast majority of them playing as a midfielder. He also made 97 appearances for Brazil, scoring 33 times
