"I had a good Copa America, the Madrid coaches have shown confidence in me and I am taking advantage of it, like with the Selecao and my personal life. It is magnificent," said Robinho.

"I'm now playing in my favourite position, as a second striker.

"Bernd Schuster is very different to Fabio Capello. He likes players who are good on the ball, for that reason I am enjoying this season."

Robinho added: "I will return to Brazil. I want to play again for Santos and in the Copa Libertadores."
