All this month, we have been hearing rumours regarding Robinho’s future, however tonight it would appear as though the Manchester City striker has in fact, played his last game for the club.
The Brazilian striker has this evening announced he has played his last game for the club he joined last September for a British record £32.5 million.
The former Real Madrid man scored in City’s 4-2 FA Cup victory over Scunthorpe today, which amazingly was his first goal of the season. It is understood that Robinho, 25, will join his hometown club Santos on a six-month loan deal before the transfer window shuts in just over a weeks time.
Speaking earlier today, Robinho had this to say : “The directors all agree that it’s better to send me out on loan. It would be exceptional to return to Santos. Playing for Santos would help me in my path to the World Cup. It is my home, I know everyone.”
I really don’t understand what happened to Robinho. He was, without doubt, one of City’s best players last season, however this season he has just been woeful. His attitude has been all wrong and I think it’s best for him and indeed Manchester City as a club that he leaves now.
As my dad says, “Good riddance.”
