The Brazil and FC Barcelona legend was arrested in Paraguay on 5 March after he and his brother were caught with fake passports.

An investigation has since been opened into the case, with reports alleging that the duo could be involved in a money laundering scheme.

However, on 7 April, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis were granted bail and have since been under house arrest in a hotel.

The former Selecao talisman has now made his first public appearance to support Sheik Turki Al-Sheikh, the owner of LaLiga 2 side Almeria, who is taking part in a FIFA 20 match for charity on Friday.

"Turki Al-Sheikh, good luck in your match... and use magic dribbles," Ronaldinho said in a video message, as quoted by Marca.

Almeria's owner will be playing against Saud Al-Suwailem, the former president of Al-Nassr FC, in the FIFA 20 match, with the proceeds going to the neediest in Saudi Arabia.

Al-Sheikh has received massive support from the football fraternity for the charity game, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona, Ronaldo Nazario, Jose Mourinho and Roberto Carlos all sending him messages of support.
