Real Madrid legend sentenced to three months in jail


Real Madrid legendary defender has been sentenced to three months in jails by Rio de Janeiro court.

According to O Dia, Brazil national team former left-back has been alleged in not paying child support to his ex-partner Barbara Thurler, with whom he has two kids.

The local reports claim that the 44-year-old has previously claimed financial problems to justify the delay of the child support payments, however, the court did not find basis for such a claim. The unpaid child support amounts to around 16.500 million euros.

Currently Real Madrid ambassador, however, is less likely to serve the sentence. His representatives claim that he has made the payments on a later date which will help him to “get away” with the delay.
