Having started his professional career there way back in 1992 and served as club president for the past six years, former Barcelona and Brazil star Rivaldo has been forced to put his boyhood side, Mogi Mirim Esporte Club, up for sale.

Having knocked about in Angola, Uzbekistan and several clubs in the lower reaches of the Brazilian leagues, Rivaldo moved back to Mogi Mirim for the second time in December of 2013, ending his career there at the age of 41 having already been awarded honorary presidency of the club several years previous.

Alas, it seems the money has now dried up and, rather than an ad in the back of the local paper or a card in the Post Office window, Rivaldo has chosen to flog the club via his Instagram account in an attempt to reach as many potential investors as possible…


“I , Rivaldo , currently President of Mogi Mirim Esporte Club, for reasons of particular order, decided to look for new investors for the club.

“However , I will remain ahead of the administration until there is a healthy transition to all , especially to the Mogi Mirim Esporte Clube .

“Note that the Club is in the First Division Paulista Championship , in the Second Division of the Brazilian Championship and has its own heritage.

“Those interested in investing in football may contact my team at the following email address…”

Are you a seedy oil baron with GSOH seeking a small Brazilian football club to use as his plaything? Looking for fun, friendship, maybe more?

If so, you know who to call!
