‘English players were out more than the Brazilians’ Robinho recalls City spell
Brazilian forward Robinho fondly remembers his time at Manchester City, but insists the English players were even more keen for a night out than the Brazilian players.
Robinho joined City in 2008 and lined up alongside compatriot Elano. The player admits that he had an active social life during his two-year spell in England.
He told Marca, “I liked Manchester, the club, the restaurants… but let’s not forget the discos. I liked having fun. But the English players went out more than the Brazilians.
“Joe Hart was always out, Micah Richards and Shaun Wright -Phillips the same.” Robinho says he does regret not winning a trophy during his time in Manchester, however.
“I was a champion at all the clubs I played, except City. If I regret something it’s not winning trophy with City, it’s the only thing that I’m a bit sad about.”
