Ronaldinho 'can't be controlled'

Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab have ruled out a move for former World Player of the Year winner Ronaldinho after admitting he “can’t be controlled”.

Ronaldinho "can't be controlled" according to Al Shabab vice-president Khalid Bu Humaid.

The 33-year-old Brazilian has been linked away from his South American club, Atletico Mineiro, with Asia a likely destination.

But after being told the price to lure the former World Cup winner away from Brazil, Al Shabab vice-president Khalid Bu Humaid reigned in his club’s interest while slamming the star’s off-field behaviour.

"We wrote back to Ronaldinho's agent last week and declined his offer," Khalid Bu Humaid told Gulf News.

"He's just overpriced and the second thing is his attitude off the field. If they could not control him at Barcelona then he can't be controlled at Dubai."
