Rivaldo ‘concerned and sad’ over pal Ronaldinho’s prison spell and it is ‘dark chapter in Brazil icon’s beautiful story’ – The Sun

BRAZIL icon Rivaldo has expressed his "concern and sadness" over the state of Ronaldinho – who remains locked in a Paraguay jail.

The 2005 Ballon d'Or winner recently celebrated his 40th birthday with a huge BBQ behind bars after being arrested for allegedly using a fake passport to enter the country.

He was all smiles in the photo but friends who have visited the ex-Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain hero say he is "sad".

And Rivaldo, who won the 2002 World Cup alongside Ronaldinho, has called this period in his mate's life a "dark chapter in his beautiful story".

Betfair ambassador Rivaldo said: "I haven't communicated with Ronaldinho since his arrest in Paraguay but I've been watching and reading about it with some concern and sadness as this is not good for his reputation and is dark chapter in his beautiful story."
