Whilst Manchester City fans are over the blue moon about their latest signing of Robinho, who would have signed for anyone to get away from Real Madrid, his home nation are less than impressed!


“Chelsea are lucky. This boy needs some serious counselling.”

Marcelo Teixeira, club president of Robinho’s first club, Santoa

“This is one of the most disgraceful episodes in Brazilian football. He is a player who is an idol to children – an example – but he has not acted like one.”

Jose Fernandos, general manager of Santos

“We are ashamed at having produced such a player.”

Ohhh City are a massive club.
