Brazilian footballing legend Ronaldinho is set to come out of retirement for a friendly for Colombian side Sante Fe in October, as long as he can get his passport back, as per reports.


The former ​FC Barcelona superstar ​officially retired last year, although he did not play much football for the years preceding his retirement's announcement as he stopped playing after leaving Fluminese back in 2015/16 season.


However, just after a year since announcing his retirement, the 39-year-old is going to be back, this time playing in Colombia for Santa Fe, against an as yet undecided opponent.



The club hasn't specified anything except this announcement that he will be featuring in a game on October 17 this year, with tickets on sale for as little as £7 and the most expensive tickets are only £30.


In November 2018, Ronaldinho and his brother, Roberto Assis Moreira, who also acted as his agent, had their passports seized by the Brazilian government for failing to pay an environmental damage fine. 


After leaving Milan in 2011, Ronaldinho went back to Brazil and played for Flamengo for one season before moving to Atletico Mineiro for two seasons.


He then left Brazil and went to Mexico where he featured with Queretaro in 2014 before finally returning to Brazil with Fluminense in 2015, playing just seven times for the club.


The 39-year-old then played ​Futsal in India for a year before finally announcing his retirement in 2018 but will soon be back in action.
