Please let me wake up and find out this story is just a dream. Why would a player of his stature need to be involved in a drug cartel ??
He has played in four World Cups and for European club sides Monaco and Barcelona, where he won the Spanish league four times and the Champions League twice.
The US treasury department says he acted as a “front person” in this drug cartel through his football school and several health and sports outlets.
I need to state that for now, these are just accusations and the player has co-operated with investigations and has made a voluntary declaration to the attorney general. So nice of him to co-operate…
I am a firm believer one is “Always innocent until proven guilty” – With such a solid playing career, I really hope he is innocent !!
