RONALDINHO’S FUTURE WITH Flamengo is under threat, after the club’s vice president was filmed saying that the forward ‘doesn’t do a ****ing thing.’

The former World Player of the Year joined the Brazilian club from Milan last year, but controversies off the field and a lack of form on it has seen him dropped from the national team.

Ronaldinho was expected to feature in a friendly game in Piaui this week, but Paulo Cesar Coutinho was asked by supporters whether the 32-year-old had been removed from the squad.

“I just talked to the president of Flamengo [Patricia Amorim]. It is already clear [that he has]. Patricia asked to apologize to the people of Piaui,” he said.

Coutinho was then asked about the power struggle between Flamengo and Ronaldinho, who claims that his wages have frequently been late.

“Who do you think will win? Flamengo is 100 years old,” added Coutinho. “Ronaldinho doesn’t do a ****ing thing.”

Rumours also suggest that the former Barcelona man is keen to leave the club after being substituted and insulted by club fans in a match against Internacional.
