Ronaldinho and his brother are located in a specialized unit which the Paraguayan minister of interior Euclides Acevedo compared more to a hotel experience rather than a prison. ‘In comparison to other penitentiaries, yes, But it's not what he's used to. The place is big and he was able to play football too. He is with his brother in a room with two beds.’ Cuevas added.
On Saturday, Ronaldinho was involved in a futsal tournament hosted by the prison and completely ran the show. The former Brazil international scored five and assisted six goals in his sides 11-2 victory.
