SAO PAULO - Former Brazil midfielder
Rivaldo, a World Cup winner in 2002, will return home next year
to play for second-tier team Mogi Mirim in the Sao Paulo state
"After resolving a lot of things outside the country I have
decided to play in the 2011 Paulista for Mogi Mirim," the
38-year-old said on his Twitter account on Thursday.
