Ronaldinho suspended for violent conduct


10:48, October 11, 2012


RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- In-form Ronaldinho will miss Atletico Mineiro's clash with Internacional in Brazil's Serie A championship on Wednesday after receiving a one-match ban for violent conduct.

Brazil's Superior Sports Justice Tribunal (STJD) found Ronaldinho guilty on Tuesday of dangerously raising his foot in a tackle on Gremio's Kleber on September 23.

The charge was laid by the league's video review panel and came despite the fact Ronaldinho was not even cautioned over the incident.

"There was no violent conduct whatsoever," Atletico Mineiro lawyer Joao Avelar said on Tuesday night.

"Nobody from Gremio complained. The game continued as normal and there was no ill-feeling at all between the players. The referee didn't even issue a yellow card, let alone a red."

Ronaldinho, who has been in outstanding form since joining Atletico Mineiro from Brazilian top flight rivals Flamengo in May, will return for the club's home duel with Sport on Sunday.
