Manchester City dazzler Robinho is aiming to outshine Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo when they clash in this month's derby. He said: "I have not met Cristiano yet, everyone knows he is a fantastic player.

"But United are not just Ronaldo, they have players like Wayne Rooney, Nani and lots of others who are very good.

"Manchester United are an excellent team. They won the Premier League and Champions League last season, but football is 11 against 11 and nothing is certain.

"I know all about the rivalry in the city and what this game means to the supporters, and I hope we can win."
