Robinho takes the bus to a shopping centre

Robinho hails some public transport

According to The Sun, the Premier League’s best paid player recently shunned luxurious private transportation and used an extremely small portion of his £140,000 per week wages to catch a bus to Manchester’s Trafford Shopping Centre:

The £32million Brazilian superstar has been using the public transport system to take his girlfriend on shopping trips.

This is an exceptionally humble mode of transport for a man who thinks nothing of taking a helicopter to work. Could it be that the affluent Brazilian is attempting to save the planet by travelling green?
