AC Milan winger Robinho admits he regrets his time at Real Madrid.

Former Manchester City attacker Robinho feels he could have handled his departure from Real better.

"I have two regrets in my career: how I left Real Madrid and how I left Santos. I don't regret that I left but the way everything was," he told Folha. "At Santos, things could have taken a different course but not in Madrid. But it is all over now. Everything serves to add to your experience."

Robinho admits he also speaks with Real target Neymar.

"I am now 27 and Neymar is 19," he explained. "I try to give him advice, both on and off the field.

"European football is different and much stronger than Brazilian football. He does not need much advice. He is a born footballer."
