Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster was full of praise for two-goal hero Robinho after last night's 4-3 defeat of Real Mallorca.

Schuster said: "In the last games he's been playing at a very high level and this is what we hoped of him. We are Madrid and we need players like him, Ruud, Raul, Sneijder... The opposition know that it is very difficult to restrain him. Let us hope that he can continue like this.

"Robinho still is young and he has left some things to improve. Although he is with Madrid, he must mature and improve in certain aspects. He is helping us in some important things as the pressure arrives. He must be happy, to only worry about his work, to be on the wing and to have mobility. We are taking advantage of it, but he must continue progressing."
