Detained Ronaldinho ‘did not know’ passport was fake, lawyer says

The two-time world player of the year and his brother Roberto, who was detained with him, spent their third night behind bars in the capital Asuncion on Sunday after using forged travel documents to enter the country. Their Brazilian lawyer Sergio Queiroz said he would ask for the pair to be released and allowed to return to their home country when they next appear before a judge on Monday. "Ronaldinho did not commit a crime because he did not know that the passport they gave him was faked," he said. Queiroz said that prosecutors had agreed that the footballer had acted in good faith and the decision by a judge to order their detention was unwarranted. Ronaldinho, considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, was the star of Brazil's 2002 World Cup win and played fo...

Sensational Tsitsipas ‘Surprises Himself’ With Semi-Final Breakthrough

Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas said he “surprised himself” with his fairytale Australian Open run after sweeping into the semi-finals on Tuesday. The 20-year-old Greek followed his stunning win over Roger Federer by accounting for Spain’s 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut, who in the first round had ended Andy Murray’s tournament and possibly his career. Tsitsipas had to contend with dropping his serve early in the first three sets before coming through 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) in 3hr 15min on Rod Laver Arena. “Roberto showed some good tennis the entire week. But at the end it’s completely different of what I can picture it before going on the court, how you can imagine your opponent is going to play,” Tsitsipas said. “I did surprise a little bit myself with my performanc...

Barca And Sergi Roberto Close To Agreement Over New Contract

According to Catalunya Radio, there was a meeting on Monday between the two parties -- the second meeting -- and while an new deal is still not closed several things have been agreed on. The club are offering Roberto a deal until 2022 (his current terms expire in 2019) and his release clause will rise to 400 million euros from 40 million euros. Logically, the player wants a salary to match such an important buyout clause and feels his current salary does not reflect his place in the squad anymore. Oscar Grau and Pep Segura, who are negotiating for Barça, are trying to close a deal with Josep Maria Orobitg, Roberto's agent.

Sevilla Go Second By Piling Misery On Malaga

Sevilla moved up to second in La Liga as second-half goals from Ever Banega and Luis Muriel ensured a routine 2-0 Andalusian derby victory over winless Malaga on Saturday. A sixth defeat in seven games pushes Malaga boss and legendary former Real Madrid player Michel ever closer to becoming already the fourth managerial change of the La Liga season. The hosts did, though, have to wait until 22 minutes from time to open the scoring from the penalty spot and with some fortune when Roberto Rosales was harshly adjudged to have brought down Joaquin Correa inside the box. Banega coolly dispatched the spot-kick and just two minutes later Muriel showed great pace to burst clear from the halfway line into the Malaga box before firing inside Roberto’s near post. Victory moves Sevilla to ...
