Robinho pleaded for chance with Real Madrid coach Schuster

El Mundo Deportivo says Robinho spoke with Schuster, on the player's request, for several minutes before training yesterday, almost pleading with the German not to bench him again this season.

The Brazil international has major concerns over his place in Schuster's plans and promised the coach that he will re-find the thrilling form of late last year.

Real football staff are convinced Robinho's slide is due to the injuries he is carrying.
