Ronaldinho Leaves Flamengo

The former AC Milan maestro has left Brazilian side Flamengo following complaints of unpaid wages.

The former Rossoneri wizard was in a tug-of-war with his club, having a falling out with the club after being insulted by Rubro-Negro during a match against Internacional. Ronaldinho decided to take legal action against the club.

He claims he is owed over 16 million euros, and the Labor Court in Rio de Janeiro has ruled in favor of Ronaldinho. The Brazilian Football Federation is expected to confirm the court’s decision, turning Ronaldinho into a free agent. Flamengo VP Rafael de Piro confirmed that the club will appeal the decision.

Ronaldinho left AC Milan for Flamengo in 2011 for three million euros after two and a half seasons with the Rossoneri. Clubs have reportedly shown interest in the Brazilian, with Major League Soccer being touted as a possible destination.
