The 48-year-old has something of a shady past in this aspect, and has been involved in a number of questionable activieis such as money laundering and getting involved in business deals with drug lords.

Interpol have listed Rincon as a wanted man for these activities, and it could be that the former international footballer is facing some serious allegations here.

As a player, Rincon also featured for clubs like Napoli, Corinthians and Santos, whilst representing the Colombian national side at the 1994 World Cup finals in the USA, and again in France four years later, where he came up against England in the group stages.

Rincon was arrested back in 2007 for his dealings with Colombian drug lord Pablo Rayo Montano but does not look to have cleaned up his act since then.
