Mexico global Rafa Marquez has been sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department due to alleged ties to Mexican drug traffickers.

The Treasury announced that it would sanction 42 Mexican entities - including a casino, several bars and restaurants, and a music production company - for providing support to longtime Mexican drug kingpin Raul Flores Hernandez.

The Mexican Attorney General's Office also seized related assets Wednesday, including the Grand Casino near Guadalajara, according to the USA statement.

The Department said Flores Hernandez has operated independently since the 1980s but "maintains strategic alliances" with other Mexican drug cartel leaders, including the Sinaloa group.

The action marks the largest single Kingpin Act action against a Mexican drug cartel network that the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has designated.

The sanctions themselves will freeze any US assets that those sanctioned hold, and it disallows United States citizens from doing business with them.

"Today's OFAC designations also include Mexican professional soccer player, Rafael Marquez Alvarez (Rafa Marquez), and Mexican singer Julio Cesar Alvarez Montelongo (Julion Alvarez)", the Treasury Dept. said in a statement. Indictments against Flores Hernandez came in March, and since then the investigation has been trying to turn up his associates.

The 38-year-old football legend is the only player in football history to captain a national team at four different World Cups.

Mr Marquez, 38, has represented Mexico in four World Cups and won more than 140 global caps in two decades with the national side. However, it was during a seven-year stint with Barcelona that Marquez made his biggest impact, winning four league titles and two Champions League winners medals in this time.

A stint in MLS with New York Red Bulls followed, before he turned to play for Leon in 2013.

Rafael Marquez was one of 21 people and 42 organisations singled out by the U.S. treasury department for sanctions.

Marquez's soccer academy and health and rehabilitation clinics were among the sanctioned organizations, according to Reuters.
