Elano believes there's plenty for Manchester City fans to be excited about this season.
He said: "Even before we signed Robinho, I knew the club really wanted a player such as him or Ronaldinho.
"I have known Robinho for a long time. I hope we can be as successful together as we were at Santos.
"Last season was a very good one for City as the team hadn't done so well in many years. Now, with players such as Jo and Robinho, we will certainly be fighting for bigger things."
