The former Real Madrid and Manchester City forward is held in high regard in these parts. Even though his career has not exactly panned the way as he would have hoped in the last few years, Robinho is the Brazil international who is valued highly.

I learn a lot from Robinho.He’s a good teacher and show me that I can try to improve myself every day. He works even when he’s on vacation. He’s a real idol to the young players here. I hope he will stay with us for a long time so we can keep learning a lot from him,” said Gabriel Barbosa Gabigol in an interview.
