Man City dazzler Robinho charms locals on the buses

Manchester City dazzler Robinho has stunned locals by catching the bus!

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

Other passengers could not believe it when they saw the pair board a double decker in the centre of Manchester.

Robinho, who earns £140,000 a week, stumped up £6 for two tickets on the five-mile journey to the out-of-town Trafford Shopping Centre.

One traveller told The Sun: "He sat downstairs as if it was the most normal thing for a multi-millionaire footballer to do. Word quickly went round about who he was. Nobody quite believed it and some just stared open-mouthed.

"You'd think Robinho would have a fleet of luxury motors like so many other Premier League players.

"At the very least you'd expect him to be driven by a chauffeur or maybe, at a push, pay for a taxi. But a bus? Amazing!"

Robinho has just been appointed Manchester City's captain by manager Mark Hughes after signing from Real Madrid earlier this year.

He and his girlfriend are thought to have caught another bus later in the day back to the five-star hotel where he is staying.
