Ronaldinho to receive Spanish citizenship

Share |

Barcelona star, Ronaldinho, should receive Spanish citizenship in the first days of 2007, making him eligible to appear for FC Barcelona as a European Union player, according to unofficial sources.

The super talented footballer delivered documents to a court Wednesday and is awaiting the call to swear allegiance to the Spanish Constitution.

We must mention that with Mexico defender Rafael Marquez gaining Spanish citizenship last month, Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o is likely to soon be Barcelona's only non EU player. Spanish clubs are allowed three non EU players in their squads. And as we know, Ronaldinho came second in the FIFA world player of the year award.
