Man City flop Robinho: English football no good for Brazilians

AC Milan signing Robinho has hit out at the Premier League after completing his move from Manchester City.

Despite considering himself among the best in the world, he left the Barclays Premier League with his reputation in tatters and a return of just 16 goals.

"Of course, I didn't do my best (at City)," he said. "It doesn't only depend on me, but on the whole group.

"I had no problem with (manager Roberto) Mancini. I always had a good relationship with him, but the problem is that English football is not so good for Brazilians, it's not my style.

"I wish success to Mancini, but life goes on. I want to make my name here.

"I am confident of succeeding with Milan because they have very good Brazilians. It's a club that always wants to play, has welcomed us very well and where many have made history. I hope the same happens to me."
