Robinho didn’t know he was going to City….


Few Premier League fans could quite believe that Brazil superstar Robinho was leaving Real Madrid in 2008 for…Manchester City. City, of course, were then simply just a mid-table top-flight side. Almost seven years on, Robinho admits he was quite surprised by the £32.5m move too. “I knew I was going to play in England but I didn’t know for which club!” says the 31-year-old, who was also linked to Chelsea before going to City. Now back at Santos, Robinho discusses his brief, but sometimes brilliant, time at Eastlands on City’s official website.
