'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robinho Quits English Classes Having Lost Interest


Sunday 18 October 2009: News of the World claim Manchester City's record signing, Robinho has quit his English classes at the club's Carrington training ground and is no longer committed to learning the language.

Neil Ashton from the News of the World writes...

Despite Robinho's happy-go-luck approach, shaking hands and smiling at everyone he comes into contact with, he is itching for a move back to Spain.

He misses Brazilian team-mate Elano, his ally in the City dressing room last year when his work-rate was under scrutiny.


Is this journalism or is this a someone who was sat in front his laptop scratching his head wondering how he could fill his quota of football stories?

Even if Robinho has quit his English language lessons does that mean he's ready to quit Manchester City FC? How many times have you decided to put a project on the back-burner simply because you need a break, or perhaps you want to focus on something else for a while?

Rather than write and publish a negative story I am going to re-write Neil Ashton's two paragraphs...

Robinho's happy-go-lucky approach, shaking hands and smiling at everyone he comes into contact with is because he realises MCFC is the only club in England with the finance and infrastructure to break into Sky's Top 4.

He misses Brazilian team-mate Elano, his ally in the City dressing room last year when his work-rate was under scrutiny and is known to keep in regular contact with someone he respects.


Wow, that was difficult!

Monday is another day and another opportunity for the hacks to write more claptrap. I for one can't wait - NOT!

Well if this is true then it shows a lack of commitment and respect as he should be learning our language in an effort to communicate better with all concerned at the club which can then only help with performances on the pitch.

I dunno Kev, really all you need to communicate on a pitch is where you want the ball, I can do that in spanish fairly well without knowing the language thoroughly.

Relentless chipping away from frustrated hacks who can only pint to one dubious defeat for City all season. Keep em coming bellends. Siege mentality fuelled again.

Perhaps he's quit the English classes because he now speaks it to an acceptable level.
