Man City boss Hughes: Brazilians will help Robinho settle

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is confident the presence of Brazil teammates Elano and Jo will help record signing Robinho settle quickly at Eastlands. "It helps that there are already other Brazilians here in the building. It is always the same if a player moves to a new country, it is easier when you move to a new club that you know some of the guys already there," declared Hughes. "It may help him settle more quickly than he would have done in isolation. I am sure Elano will tell him all he needs to know about the place."
