Top-scorer of the Campeonato Mineiro, Robinho aims to return to the national team
Former Manchester City striker Robinho has displayed good football for Atlético Mineiro this year, and aims to return to the Brazilian national team.
Robinho's team have made it into the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores, and he's the top goal-scorer of the Campeonato Mineiro. In less than three months at Atlético Mineiro, Robinho has scored 10 goals in 12 games, including nine goals in eight matches in the state league. Bought by Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015, Robinho left China to come to Brazil at the start of this year, and is happy with his performances, so far. He told Esporte Espetacular: "National team? While I am a professional player I will not give that up. But calmly, doing good work here at Galo... this is the way. Haven't talked to Dunga, but I know his methods, I was one of the players who was called up the most during the era of Dunga and I know that the best way for me to get into the national team again is to play the way I'm playing here at Galo."
