Bitchy Remarks

Real Madrid coach says Robinho has joined a ‘mediocre’ club

Miaow! One saucer of milk for Bernd, please

Bernd Schuster

We all know that Robinho joined Manchester City for the money in order to advance his career with a top Premier League side, however, Bernd Schuster doesn’t quite see it that way. The angry German Real Madrid manager said yesterday:

“From a sports point of view, for me it is a disappointment because Robinho had everything here to triumph.”

But you have to respect his dream to be a good player in a mediocre club in England.

Schuster isn’t the only one to criticise his move to Eastlands – Pele (who oversaw Robinho’s development with Santos’ youth programme) has claimed the young Brazilian ‘needs counseling‘ following his decision to leave Los Blancos. Robinho, obviously spotting Pele’s penchant for making a fast buck, retorted by claiming the old timer would have made exactly the same move.

Is Herr Schuster correct in his assessment of City? Or has Robinho wisely joined the club at the start of their ascension to greatness? Let us know with a comment below.

    Pele’s comment is not fair even if he was the one for a club wanting to use him as a tool to buy another play after failing to go through you prented that he has an important role to make in the team its not fair i surpot Robinho.

    it is a mediocre club, but it has a lot of potential. i thought SWP was more impressive than robinho last week. SWP is a great player. one of the best of his kind.
