Robinho accepted Felipão's decision to leave him out of Brazil’s World Cup squad with ‘serenity’It appears this duo won't be together for Brazil this summer -
Before Luiz Felipe Scolari named his 23-man World Cup squad, various media outlets were speculating that AC Milan forward Robinho would be given another opportunity on the biggest of stages.
However, when Felipão released his squad list the 30-year-old forward wasn’t included and the attackers dreams of appearing in a third World Cup now seem over.
Robinho’s agent Marisa Ramos revealed the Brazilian accepted the decision with "serenity" when she spoke to Milannews.it today.
Football Italia quoted Ramos, who said: “Robinho has accepted it with serenity, whilst on the other hand the competition to get into the 23 with the national team is great.
“Throughout the world there are compatriots who are doing very well and indeed even other players of great talent have been left out by Scolari.
“It is part of the game and Robinho must accept the Coach’s decision.”
Robinho has hardly been in the greatest form this season but neither have several of Scolari’s other final picks.
Therefore you would imagine the Milan forward’s exclusion is more down to the fact that he has failed to impressed when among Felipão's squad.
It isn't all bad news for Robinho, though, as this summer without football could now be the perfect opportunity for him to arrange a transfer away from Milan, should he wish to depart the San Siro.
