Rivaldo and his son, Rivaldinho, who also plays for Mogi Mirim
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…
