Manchester City star Robinho admits he is loving the adulation he receives from English fans.

He told The Sun: "It's been fantastic. They treat me like Maradona over here.

"I feel a little embarrassed at times and I hope I can repay all this love on the field. It's funny, a black Maradona!

"The only thing is I can't score goals with my hand!"

Coincidentally, new Argentina coach Maradona was in Manchester yesterday, visiting United's Carlos Tevez.
