Fluminense's next two Brazilian Series will be played without football star Ronaldinho due to a virus, the club reported on September 8.
The 35-year-old missed Fluminense's 3-1 defeat to Flamengo on September 6 after complaining of fever and muscle soreness. Doctors ordered the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year winner to rest after he underwent tests on September 8.
Ronaldinho has made six appearances for Fluminense since joining the Rio de Janeiro club in July. He has yet to score and was jeered by fans during the team's 2-1 loss to Atletico Mineiro on August 30.
Fluminense will meet Coritiba away on Wednesday followed by a trip to Sport Recife on Sunday. The four-time Brazilian Serie A winners are currently ninth in the standings with 33 points from 23 matches.
