Robinho Is Not A Special Case

Robinho Is Not A Special Case

Google language translator


According to Mark Hughes, Manchester City ace, Robinho will be punished after leaving the Tenerife training camp without permission.

The Brazilian claimed at the time...

'I had made Manchester City aware that I needed to return to Brazil because of a family matter. I will return to the club and hope to sort this out as soon as possible.'

During todays press conference ahead of Wednesday nights home fixture game against Newcastle, the City boss said...

'The disciplinary procedure has to be gone through and once that's run its course then Robbie will have to face some disciplinary measures. The level of those measures will be kept private as you would expect.'

'Let's make this clear. Robinho will be treated in exactly the same manner, given the circumstances, as any other player at Manchester City. Everybody knows that - there's no special case here.'

'Given a similar circumstance with any other player here they would expect to be treated in a similar manner. That needs to be made clear and that's the top and bottom of it.


Sparky finished off by adding...

'I've touched on what I expect to happen and it really is at the point where we've moved on and drawn the line under it and we're looking forward to preparing for the game against Newcastle.'

again the club should deal with these things better. Hughes and cook should say robinho has gone to brazil and will be back this week. End it there.... all this '''he will be treated like every other player...business, fuels more rubbish in the press about unrest in the team, hughes can't handle big player... Were best keeping it all in house .

I reckon that our club are on one hell of a steep learning curve right now!

The problem with taking a 24 year old Brazilian cavalier half way home, and dumping him off the African coast with millions in the ATM, no language difficulties and no chaperon should have been easier to anticipate. But there was a bigger problem.. Kaka.. which was bound to arrive anyway. Cook will likely be chastened by that experience. If he isn't, he'll either be allowed to turn into a less subtle Bob Lord, (unlikely) or he'll be posted to the LA branch. The business ideas are relevant to the future, whether you like that or not, but they need to executed in harmony with present reality. Can you remember what you were like at 24? I was pretty wild. That's the way that 'Robbie' should be kept, wild and free. That way he'll continue to come up with the goods. Yea, fine him the price of his time-off, but then give him a smile. Not a wink, just a smile.

The problem with all talented footballers is they have an ego to match their talent. They all think they are the most important person in a team. The trick as RH says is to harness it without destroying the creativity. The way it is handled is MHs and this will be a measure of his skills.
