Love Is Why Robinho Plays For Man City, Not Money!

Love Is Why Robinho Plays For Man City, Not Money!

Robinho`s transfer shook the premiership upside down, when he swapped sunny Spain for cloudy England. Many reporters suggested his move was based on money. A reported £160,000 a week is a huge amount of money, but his fellow samba star Elano has issued a statement regarding Robinho and his move to Manchester.

"He is not like that, he plays for the love, not for the money,' Elano is quoted by the Daily Mail.

Robinho may have only played 3 games, but he has already shown his willingness and determination to prove his love for football, if he can do that and pick up a £160,000 wage per week, then its money well spent.

Another question poised by football fans outside of Manchester City, state that nobody else will come to Man City. I find this ridiculous, as anyone who cant see the plans and the degree of investments the new owners are bringing to the club, should really think again. I predict the Robinho Deal to be the first of many, as the deal will trigger a domino effect. Players will se Robinho playing day in, day out, and will grab headlines almost every week. Who wouldn`t want to play for a team with Robinho on the wing?

Mark Hughes already believes Robinho will be value for money, and I for one agree.

On the back of this signing, Sheikh Mansour and Chairman Maburak's declarations that City's future and developing squad will be youth focused and Academy based are very welcome. One in the eye for all the bandwaggoners accusing City of being the new Cheslki. They have already rubbished the hysteria fed by the likes of @sehole Whinger that City will be making a ridiculous amount of unbelievable money signings.

*********! and im not a bitter pompey fan after you spanked us :-) he wanted to sign for chelski just days before you signed him... i have no doubt he will, if he hasnt already, grown ro love you but the fact he wanted premier league football and the £160,000 probably swayed him your way!
good luck to you tho guys!

Plus the vision of what's to come pompeycarpet! He is the first to join the revolution and, coupled with the academic conveyor belt (which will keep on rolling!), there will be others that follow his path. He wants to play football and he wants to feel appreciated. At City, he will get both!

I bet he is sure glad he signed for us because if he had gone to Chelski he would have been out of the frying pan and into the fire not knowing from one week to another whether he would be playing or not. With us he is will be playing for one of the top teams in the world and guaranteed superstar status. Just think we might have signed Berbatov, perish the thought.

Elano is as truthful as you can get. When he was taking all the headlines last season he made it clear his Brazilian international colleague were amazed at the number of goals he was scoring, and how well he was scoring them. He let all of us know he was actually not a Brazilian prodigy. he shared with us that his role with Brazil was actually defensive midfield or even right back. When he was Sven's best attacking option. And when he talks about Robinho I think he is being just as honest once more. Robinho is a phenomenon, sure. One who can do things with a football which can defy the best defenders in the world, can change a game in a millisecond and create magic in a moment. But the truth is this. He is 24, he loves his baby son so much that every time he scores he uses a tribute to his son to celebrate. He is more like average Joe than most top football stars -- and I happen to think almost all the negotiation was through agents and truly he cannot believe the money any more than other Prem players or fans can. He wanted to leave Real because they were planning to replace him with Manure's Ronaldo. To someone with Robinho's heart and talent that was unacceptable. He is showing his new loyalties in the best way he can, by playing his heart out. Manure's Ronaldo is this week once again linked with prostitutes in the media. Robinho is in a different league.
