Santos ace Robinho reflects on Man City transfer

Santos star Robinho has spoken of his past move from Real Madrid to Manchester City.

Robinho left Real in 2008 for City in a €42.5 million deal.

"I can still remember that there were great expectations," Robinho told City's website. "I only knew myself that I was going to play in England, but I did not know which team. I was very happy when I found out that I got the chance to play for Manchester City.

"It was at the last moment.

"It was a team that opened doors for me, it was a big transfer at that time, City did not have many great players in their team, but it is a club that I love and I respect."
