Pele slams new Man City signing Robinho: Chelsea were lucky

Pele says Chelsea have been dealt a lucky hand by losing out to Manchester City in their battle for Real Madrid winger Robinho. Many believe Robinho moved just for the reported £95,000 a week offered by City. Pele, 67, said: “Chelsea are lucky. This boy needs some serious counselling. He has been badly advised.” Former Real coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo added: “If you want to become the best, you need a team with possibilities to shine. I don’t know if his football or his career will go back at City.”
