Ronaldinho has expressed his support for far-right, racist, misogynist and homophobic Brazilian election candidate Jair Bolsonaro.

“Our democratic values do not coincide with what we have heard from this candidate,” said Vives. “We do respect the freedom of expression including the words of Ronaldinho.”

The former Barcelona player published a message on social media asking fans to vote for Bolsonaro, “for a better Brazil”.

Vives added: “We have not taken a decision on (whether Ronaldinho stays in his role or not). We will see further down the line.”
