Ronaldinho Anxious Over 4 Month Salary Delay

Former Barcelona and AC Milan star Ronaldinho who now plays for Brazilian club Flamengo has not been paid for the last 4 months and according to his brother who also doubles up as his agent, Gaucho is starting to lose patience with the club.

It is known the exact amount Dinho is paid every week, but it is believed to be in the region of £95,000.  This brings the entire figure to a whooping £1,520,000! Of course this has led to rumours that the 31 year old could be on his way out of the club.

Ronaldinho who has scored 13 goals in 26 league appearances for Flamengo since joining the club back in January has however maintained that a move away from Flamengo is simply impossible.

Speaking to Marca Sport Dinho’s agent De Assis stated that the situation with the club was becoming uncomfortable and that they would have to settle it soon.

“Ronaldinho has not received his wages for four months and is still on the pitch, trying hard, but struggling.

“We are waiting, but patience has its limits. We’re running out of patience with the whole situation.”

“This is all speculation, hype, blah, blah, blah. Nobody knows anything. He has a contract, that’s all I can say.”

However, when question about Ronaldinho’s future, he did not give a conclusive answer which continues to fuel speculation that the star could leave Brazil.

“This is all speculation, hype, blah, blah, blah. Nobody knows anything. He has a contract, that’s all I can say.”

The news has also raised hope in Milan fans who are yet to full recover from his shock move in January. With Tevez likely joining Milan in January, the Rossnerri would be a team to reckon with.

That said, Ronaldinho has indeed made great strides with Flamengo. His performances  led him to  be called up by Brazil coach Mano Menezes to the squad for the first time since 2009 for a recent friendly against Ghana.

It still is not certain whether He will be a part of the 2014 squad, however, many feel that in honour of his great achievements Menezes should give him the opportunity to retire with the honour he deserves especially after being excluded from Dunga’s 2010 World Cup Squad for no apparent reason.
