Robinho: There's More to Football than Winning

Newly signed Manchester City star Robinho explained his shock move from Real Madrid to Manchester City, saying, "There's more to football than winning trophies, playing in huge, packed stadiums, playing in the Champions League, and playing with famous, talented teammates."

The tricky Brazilian indicated that he is ready for life at Eastlands. "I've met my new teammates. We have some good players. You can tell they have played football before, some of them for years and years. I think we are going to surprise people with our ability to pass, head, and shoot the football."

Robinho admitted that he had preferred to move to Chelsea, but when City met Madrid's asking price, he realized that it didn't matter if his parents never got to see him play on television again.
