Until very recently, Ronaldinho was synonymous with joy. A crack that enchanted the world thanks to a huge talent that allowed him to make unimaginable plays. The genius of magnetic smile which also generated a rare sympathy until among the most fierce rivals. A culé capable of leaving standing applauded for Santiago Bernabeu puzzled by his genius. An inspiration for a whole generation. Even for one of the few who can say that he was better than him, Messi. But if Ronaldinho was able to haggle down to the pitch, off the pitch, Ronaldo de Assis Moreira has not had the same success to untangle itself from the marking of the Law.Stopped from the past 6th of March for possession and use of forged Paraguayan passports, the former soccer player turns 40 today, imprisoned, in Asunción. He and his brother, the also former player Roberto de Assis, is it so under investigation for various crimes. His arrest has uncovered a corruption network in Paraguay that has already led to imprisonment from 15 other people accused of tax evasion, money laundering or manufacturing of falsified documents.Since the day that Police went after him In a luxury hotel in the Paraguayan capital, Justice has rejected three requests from conditional freedom or house arrest presented by their lawyers. The judge considers that there is “high risk of leakage of the country “and that Ronaldinho must remain in prison because” his freedom could jeopardize the integrity of the investigation. “Yes for him rest of the world the mess in which Ronaldinho has entered Paraguay has been a big surprise, in Brazil, not so much. He and his brother carry years involved in different court battles. In southern Brazil, where the Assis family has its operations and business headquarters, there are eight lawsuits against the brothers, including millionaire tax debts, in addition to rents and rates of real estate communities and luxury commercial premises in a situation of unpaid.JORGE ADORNO / REUTERS ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Arrested and handcuffed in Paraguay.JORGE ADORNO / REUTERS Background. Since november 2019 there is a class action lawsuit against the former player and five other partners of the company ’18K Ronaldinho’, accused of an alleged pyramid scam that promised profits of up to 2% a day through investment in a cryptocurrency. Around 800 investors report losses of approximately 65 million euros. The company had no registration with the Transferable Securities Commission (CVM), which governs the investment market in Brazil.It’s not the first time that Ronaldinho looks involved in a financial scam. In 2014 the former player partnered with another cryptocurrency investment firm, “Panela FC”, which the CVM ordered to close a year later for considering that there were irregularities and illegalities in the system used.Ronaldinho had to pay more € 2M of fines for four lawsuits for environmental crimes. The former player had his passport seized and 57 properties blocked. During the process, the Prosecutor’s Office intervened their accounts and he found only € 5 even though he came to be on the list of the richest footballers in the world, with a accumulated fortune of about € 83M, According to the magazine Forbes, in 2015.“His only mistake was have used the passport, even if he had done it in good faith, “explains his lawyer, Sergio Queiroz, by phone from Asunción. The lawyer assures that Ronaldinho thought that the passports were “a gift” that “they had been legally issued”. “He accepted the documents as assumed Spanish nationality at the time, did not imagine that they were false “, Queiroz testifies, which denies that the former player had tried to obtain the papers to make investments in the country.At the moment, the lawyer waiting that the investigation on the mobile phones of the player and his brother show that both are not involved in the other crimes that were uncovered by the Paraguayan Justice and that may “pay the corresponding fines for the crime of use of false documents“and get out of jail” as soon as possible. “The problem is that the closure of borders and the suspension of activities of Justice for the coronavirus have delayed still more the process that, according to Queiroz, “is absolutely abusive”. At the mercy of what the Justice dictates, Ronaldinho will spend his 40th birthday away from the spotlights where it shone like few others. Between bars. No fame, no glamor. With his image and legacy sunk.
Why was it not successful in Madrid?: “Due to several factors: I was soon alone in Madrid, the first games of the season did not go well and I lost a little confidence, the injury to the sciatic nerve that had me out for almost a month …”. Carlos Secretary (Aveiro, Portugal, 49 years old), that right-back who played for Real Madrid from 1996 to January 1998, has given an extensive interview to the Portuguese media tribunaexpresso.pt, where he reviews his career and, of course, talks about his short stint in the white team.His arrival at Real Madrid: “After the excellent moments I spent with Porto, my performances with the national team in the Eurocup of ’96, I came to Real Madrid through a businessman who already passed away, Manuel Barbosa, who took care of everything. Madrid paid the clause that I had in Porto that freed me “.It was not in his plans, but it was irrepressible: “To be honest, it was not what I was looking for. After having achieved my dream of being in Porto, going out was not my main objective, but I think that all of us, stop being hypocrites, look for the best and how could I refuse to play for Real Madrid? I don’t think any player does that. Going to Madrid, with the contract that was, one of the best clubs in the world, was not easy to reject. And that could even have gone to Barcelona in that moment, when Bobby Robson went there. I was signing with Real Madrid in Lisbon, when I received a call from Vítor Baía saying: ‘We are waiting for you’, and I replied: ‘No one told me anything’ … “.He regrets?: “Perhaps I could have gone to Barcelona with a coach who knew me and would have given me more support in some difficulties that I later had; I would also have had fellow wardrobes (Fernando Couto, Vítor Baía), who would have made me feel better in my adaptation, but I made the decision to go to Madrid. It could have been better, it could also be much worse, I don’t know … “.Family reaction when going to Madrid: “Everyone was happy first, then with some apprehension, like me. My ex-wife left with me, then she left and I spent a lot of time alone, in a house in Futre. He called me, said he had his house available for rent, and the club rented it for me. “Adaptation: “The fact that I was away from my country, away from my friends, another language, which although it is not very different from mine, but at first when they spoke to me quickly it was difficult to understand. As time passed, things They improved. Real Madrid is a club with a global dimension, with fantastic working conditions. Although he came from a great club like Porto and was already used to good conditions, in Madrid he was even bigger. “DAILY AS ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>DAILY AS Relationship with Capello: “He was a coach who, despite putting me on as a starter and betting on me, never had a conversation with me, never called me aside and asked me if I was okay, if I was wrong, what I needed, he never told me what I had to improve … nothing. I respect Fabio Capello, because he is a great coach, he did an excellent job, of course, but he behaved badly. I expected more from him. He never did this job with me and I think it is important for all Players. There are many examples of players who have been at Real Madrid, were not successful and cost much, but much more than I. It still happens today. I was not, nor will I be, a unique case. At that time, I received a lot of criticism, from that I had no level for Real Madrid and other things that I heard and that made no sense. If I was a starter in Porto, where I was used to playing European competitions, and I was a starter in the Portugal team, why shouldn’t I Have a level to play for Real Madrid? “Deepest in Madrid: “It is obvious that things did not go well, but when things do not go well and you do not have a coach who speaks to you, gives you moral support, it is not the most correct behavior of a coach. Also, I was a person who I protected myself a lot, even in my personal life. With the media I never knew how to take advantage of my image, I took a lot of refuge, whether things went right or wrong, and that was not beneficial for me. “Capello said: “Secretary was ‘shitting’ at the Bernabéu”: “It is a stupid and unnecessary statement, I do not know if it is due to age … I do not know. Maybe I need to continue appearing in the media. I do not want to disrespect Capello, but I have to defend myself. If I was afraid of to be at Real Madrid, at the end of the season I would have left. And I didn’t. I was unlike him who left, he didn’t stay at the club. Maybe he was afraid. Because the club wanted to be champion of Europe and thought that he did not have the ability to make him a champion to Madrid. And in fact another coach came and we were champions of Europe (1998, the Seventh). I left mid-season because my performance really was not good, I have to assume it , but the coach that came (Heynckes) spoke to me, he was direct with me, and he supported me “.Panucci arrived and Madrid left: “Capello went to look for Panucci because, in reality, he was not responding to what people expected of me and what I was capable of at the time … Some members of the club came to talk to me, but the coach did not He did not have a great relationship with the Madrid management either, because he is a difficult person to deal with. In the second year (when Heynckes arrived) I started at a disadvantage, but I tried to fight for the position and change the situation. I couldn’t do it, I asked to leave and I went back to Porto. The fans didn’t like my performances and they whistled, but outside the stadium the treatment was completely different, it was very good, people respected me. “

How was the closing: “There was a sense, the feeling of what Madrid meant: to combat, to not faint, to equalize, to return again … We didn’t decrease our arms and in a single transfer I used to be in a position to make a double dribble and handle to attain. It was additionally an important shot Serena from exterior the space by the squad. The gang went to the subject and the recreation needed to cease.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP):Novak Djokovic recalled his own brush with match fixing, as the start of the year’s first Grand Slam tournament was overshadowed by corruption allegations.Djokovic started his bid for a sixth Australian Open title with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Chung Hyeon of South Korea yesterday, hours after the BBC and Buzzfeed News published reports alleging match fixing had gone unchecked in tennis.No players were identified in the reports, which alleged 16 players had been flagged repeatedly with tennis authorities but not sanctioned on suspicion of match fixing. Half of those are entered in the Australian Open, the reports said.The governing bodies for the sport and the Tennis Integrity Unit issued a joint statement, read by ATP chairman Chris Kermode, at a hastily convened news conference at Melbourne Park.Kermode said tennis authorities “absolutely reject any suggestion that evidence of match fixing has been suppressed for any reason, or isn’t being investigated”.Djokovic later responded to a question about an approach ahead of a tournament in St Petersburg, Russia, in 2007.”I was approached through people that were working with me at that time, that were with my team,” he said. “Of course, we threw it (the approach) away right away. It didn’t even get to me. The guy that was trying to talk to me, he didn’t even get to me directly. There was nothing out of it.PREVIOUSRUMOURS”Unfortunately, there were some, in those times, those days, rumours, some talks, some people were going around. They were dealt with. In the last six, seven years, I haven’t heard anything similar.”Djokovic was an up-and-coming player at the time, not winning the first of his 10 major titles until the 2008 Australian Open.”It made me feel terrible because I don’t want to be anyhow linked to this kind of you know, somebody may call it an opportunity,” he said. “For me, that’s an act of unsportsmanship, a crime in sport, honestly. I think there is no room for it in any sport, especially in tennis.”Djokovic said he thought the allegations related to matches from almost 10 years ago, and didn’t involve active players.Roger Federer, a 17-time major winner and former leader of the player council, agreed the allegations likely weren’t new but remained “super serious”.”I would love to hear names,” Federer said. “Then at least it’s concrete stuff, and you can actually debate about it. Was it the player? Was it the support team? Who was it? Was it before? Was it a doubles player, a singles player? Which slam?”It’s super serious, and it’s super important to maintain the integrity of our sport. So how high up does it go? The higher it goes, the more surprised I would be, no doubt about it.”Serena Williams was on court preparing for her opening 6-4, 7-5 win over No 34-ranked Camila Giorgi when Kermode was holding a news conference to respond to the fixing allegations.The 21-time major winner said there was no hint of match fixing on the women’s tour.”I play very hard, and every player I play seems to play hard,” she said. “As an athlete, I do everything I can to be not only great, but, you know, historic.”

Hundreds of residents on the West Bank of Demerara are experiencing an “unreliable” flow of water as a result of the damaged Guyana Power and Light (GPL) submarine cable.This is according to the Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI).In a notice on Friday, the water company explained that all of GWI Stations on the West Bank of Demerara are being affected by low voltage. This has caused station motors to become unable to operate continuously, thereby resulting in an unreliable water supply.However, the most affected stations are Canal Number Two Polder, Belle Vue, Wales, L’Oratoire and Good Hope. “Due to the severity of the situation, a generator is being mobilised at Canal Number Two to mitigate the current problems being faced with water,” the company assured.This generator will, on the other hand, improve service to customers in Canal Number Two and Belle West, while customers along the villages from Schoonord to Free and Easy will remain affected, GWI informed as it added its apologies for the inconvenience caused.This alert from GWI comes on the heels of an announcement also on Friday, by the Director General at the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon, that the main submarine cable across the Demerara River to link the Vreed-en-hoop and Kingston substations has been restored with less load shedding activities.Nonetheless Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GPL, Albert Gordon had disclosed at a press conference that they are in talks with both Giftland and Banks DIH Limited to buy power from them to boost the capacity of the interconnected system. The two entities are powering their own operations using heavy fuel oil and have substantial capacity.In a notice published in the daily newspapers by the Maritime Department, it was revealed that works commenced on June 8 to rectify the first damaged submarine cable laid on the riverbed along the channel of the Demerara River which connects the Vreed-en-Hoop and Kingston Power Stations.A second GPL submarine cable was disrupted on June 6, due to another maritime accident that occurred four days after the disruption of the 69kV submarine cable.This 13.8kV submarine cable, which rests along the upper Demerara River within proximity of Craig, East Bank Demerara, was dislodged by a barge sailing along the Demerara River.As a result of this incident, West Demerara customers from Vriesland to La Retraite were without electricity while efforts were underway to alternatively power these customers from the Vreed-en-Hoop Substation.
