What should a professional soccer player do after retirement? There is not a specific activity for those who abandoned soccer. Players are usually not prepared, as they have dedicated their life to the sport, to practice any other activity and usually continue doing things linked to soccer.
One of the most strangers’ cases of activities done after retirement is the one of Ronaldinho. The Brazilian was a legend and is the idol of a complete generation that loved watching him playing. He was not a player like others, as the things he did on the field made many persons happy.
On January 2018, Dinho announced his official retirement, despite he wasn’t playing since 2015. He tried many activities and kept gaining millions due to the sponsorships that he had signed, but during 2020 he lived a cross road moment. He went to prison after trying to enter to Paraguay with illegal documents and had to make a big change in life.
After having COVID-19 and getting out of jail, he decided to start working hard and opened a music studio. There, he makes music and video clips for different artists and is now even selling merchandising on his social media. The star won’t be earning as much as he gained in his golden days at FC Barcelona, AC Milan or Paris Saint-Germain, but is definitively enjoying his new life.
