Ronaldinho renting out his Rio de Janeiro house during World Cup
2002 World Cup winner Ronaldinho has brushed off the disappointment at being overlooked by head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari for the 2014 tournament by renting out his Rio de Janeiro house this summer for the princely sum of £9,120 per night.
Fans wanting to grab a snippet of the footballer's lifestyle can now do so through airbnb.com, although were one to stay in the accommodation for the duration of the World Cup, they would have to stump up almost £300,000- less than a month's wages to R10 in all probability.
The house has five bedrooms, a swimming pool and a sauna and is situated in the plush security-heavt district of Barra de Tijuca in the very south of the city.
34 year-old Ronaldinho had been tipped as a late contender for Brazil's home World Cup, but failed to impress in a couple of friednly matches in early 2013.
