Former Brazil international, Ronaldinho, is in a spot of bother in his homeland after 57 of his properties were seized following a court order due to unpaid taxes.
A Brazilian newspaper, Folha de S.Paulo, reported on Monday that Ronaldinho owes 9.5 million reais, the equivalent of GH¢ 13.5 million.
The former Barcelona player also reportedly also owes creditors 7.8 million reais, or GH¢ 11.1 million.
A judge in Porto Alegre told Reuters news that because the case was under judicial secrecy rules it couldn’t comment on it.
The former player has also had his passports seized by Spanish and Brazilian authorities.
Ronaldinho recently featured on the Instagram Rich List, placing sixth, with the Brazilian reportedly charging £206,000 for every promotional post.
He had a storied career that spanned just over two decades, playing for some of Europe’s biggest sides including Barcelona and AC Milan.
He enjoyed the most successful period of his career at the Catalan club, where he scored 94 goals and assisted 71 more.
He was also named the World Footballer of the Year in 2004 and 2005, winning the Ballon d’Or in 2005.
