Elano happy to have "brother" Robinho at Man City

Elano is delighted to have fellow Brazilian Robinho as a teammate at Manchester City.

The midfielder told MCFCTV: "I was very happy when I heard he was coming, because I look at him as one of my brothers. I always tell him that he was missing me, that's why he came after me here!

"I know what I can do with or without him, but he has often told me that he needs me around to improve his game as well. I have known him so well for many, many years and when we have played together he has a lot of chances to score, and his game improves.

"Sometimes I'm a bit sad if I'm not playing in the team, and I feel that I could. That's not up to me, but I'm very happy to have Robinho here alongside me because we are such good friends."
