Ronaldinho may be the most skilled football player ever set foot on the earth. When it comes to gorgeous football and on-court charm, the Brazilian is a complete package.
But he was not so self-disciplined off the court, this attitude began to hang over him after the end of his career. Ronaldinho won the FIFA Player of the Year Award twice (2004 and 2005), and won the World Championship and the UEFA Champions League with Brazil and Barcelona respectively.
These successes were accompanied by a lot of funding and support, but the Sun recently discovered that the Brazilian was bankrupt and owed £1.75 million. Interestingly, it was also discovered that Ronaldinho’s bank account had a balance of only £5. His financial problems began after he and his brother Roberto Assis were fined for illegally building a house in a nature reserve in their home country.
