Milan:Thieves broke into Ronaldinho's house and made off with thousands of dollars worth of goods but left behind the football star's Golden Ball trophy, Italian media reports said on Thursday.
Ronaldinho was at home in Brazil when the burglary took place early yesterday morning, Corriere della Sera reported. Four thieves stole mainly jewelry and watches, Corriere reported.
Ronaldinho, who won the Golden Ball award as the best player in Europe in 2005, is in his first season with Milan. He recently moved into the house, which has been broken into twice before while previous owners lived there, including former Milan player Riccardo Sogliano.
