Former Paraguay striker Nelson Cuevas said that Ronaldinho is ‘sad’ about his present situation after being jailed for using fake papers to enter Paraguay.
Since March 5, Ronaldinho and his brother, Roberto, have been held in a police cell in Paraguay for allegedly using false passports following their arrival at Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay.
Lawyers representing the 39-year-old and Roberto filed an appeal last week, two days after another court rejected their request to release the duo on bail or house arrest.
Cuevas, who visited the former attacking midfielder in prison, told Infobae: “Ronaldinho is sad. Hopefully, he can get out soon from the prison.
“He is just sad because of the situation.
“His lawyers are handling the rest. Hopefully, he can get out of there soon.”
Ronaldinho will now return to court on Tuesday.
The Barcelona legend is currently without a Brazilian passport because of an environmental fine he received back in 2018.
