Fans of the Brazilian domestic game have had little to celebrate given the clubs' poor management over the years.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazil's government wants to let football clubs renegotiate $1.2 billion in debts but in the process force them to start spending more wisely.

The measure signed by President Dilma Rousseff on Thursday gives Brazilian clubs up to 20 years to pay what they owe to the federal government. In exchange, they must manage their finances more professionally.

Congress still has to approve the measure.

In order to take advantage of the government's favorable conditions, clubs have to commit...

Gremio fans accused of racial abuse in Brazilian cup match

Brazilian legend Pele spoke at a conference recently about the sudden increase of racism from fans in Brazil.

Brazilian police have formally accused four Gremio fans of racially insulting a player in a Brazilian Cup match.

Police say the fans were among those who called Santos goalkeeper Aranha a "monkey," and imitated monkey noises at Arena Gremio on Aug. 28.

A judge will decide whether to charge them and, if charged and convicted, they face up to three years in prison.

The fans, identified by authorities and club officials, had already been banned from matches for two years because of their acts.


Real Madrid's self-inflicted issues, Man Utd's evolution, Barca's bright start

Saturday night at the Bernabeu was a study in contrast. Atletico manager Diego Simeone -- who was banned from the sideline -- paced around a skybox like some kind of caged, yet ecstatic, wild animal.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid's Carlo Ancelotti stood on the sideline with his usual hangdog expression and looked like those cartoon characters with a cloud above their head, following him around everywhere, liberally dispensing lightning and rain.

Atletico's 2-1 win marked the first time ever that they had...
