At the time of hiring him, the Belo Horizonte club had promised to pay him 13 million to use his image rights until the end of his stay. However, 5.6 million of that amount were not paid and the Brazilian star decided to take the case to court.

Finally, the ruling was in favor of the former Barcelona footballer and it was resolved that Mineiro must pay him 6.3 million in ten installments until October 2023.

Ronaldinho arrived at Galo in June 2012 and remained until 2014. In total, he played 85 games in which he scored 27 goals and distributed 22 assists, in addition to obtaining a Copa Libertadores and a Recopa Sudamericana.
