There were rumors in recent days that the former Barcelona star could take part in a planned prison kickaround with others inside the maximum security facility while he is there.
And according to Fox, the buck-toothed legend has ACCEPTED an invitation to join in – but under certain conditions.
Inmates have reportedly specified that the 2005 Ballon d’Or winner can play but only if he agrees NOT to score.
The silky-skilled Brazilian will however be allowed to lay on as many assists as he pleases, as he takes part in a tournament said to involve almost 200 players.
It’s not clear how the teams will determine who gets Ronaldinho in their side, but you’d imagine he will be the hottest property in prison.
