Tearful Robinho chases his dream of earning more money
British transfer record smashed in Man City coup
Over the weekend Brazilian Man-O’-Sex Robinho held his own press conference to tell us all how his ‘head is in Chelsea‘, yet last night night he became the first purchase of that new Arabian team in Manchester. Following the £32.5m record transfer, Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon revealed the slightly unstable nature of his former employee:
“We decided that the best thing was for him to leave. He has an emotional problem that is worse than he thought. Every time I have spoken to him he has cried.”
To paint a more detailed picture of Robinho’s highly professional acumen, Calderon confirmed that the 24-year-old winger/ second striker cares more for the good paper than a successful career:
“The fact is that we have accepted an offer for Manchester City, and that he is not going for sporting reasons.”
It seems that the Brazilian was happy to pull on the shirt of the highest bidder, which makes us wonder where Peter Kenyon was last night. As the keeper of Roman Abramovich’s bottomless kitty, how did he allow Chelsea to be side-stepped on this deal? Is the man who oversaw huge losses on SWP and Shevchenko losing his touch? Or did Chelsea simply realise they don’t need Robinho? Let us know what you think with a comment below.
