Robinho’s story as a football player is one that many consider to be one that disappointed as the Brazilian attacker was once hailed as the next Pele but despite performing in some of the best clubs in the world alongside world class players, it still wasn’t enough for Robinho to make consistent performances in Europe as he failed with: Real Madrid, Manchester City and Ac.Milan.
The initial years of Robinho’s career started off in a brilliant way and it seemed like he was destined for greatness as the Brazilian player wore the number 10 jersey, the same one as Pele and at the age of 20, he had already guided Santos to 2 CampeonatoBrasileiroSerie A titles.
Things started to fall apart forRobinho ever since he opted to make a switch to the European League. The Brazilian player started setting his sights to bigger clubs and he eventually went on to join Real Madrid, which was his first top European club that Robinho joined and it wasn’t a complete disaster for him in Real Madrid as he did manage to make a few memorable performances but his problem was his consistency as there were some matches where he stood out but in other instances he was invisible.
When Madrid signed C.Ronaldo in 2009, that marked the end of Robinho in the Spanish club and he later went on to join Manchester City and Ac.Milan but never really managed to find his place.
At the age of 32, Robinho made a return to Brazil as he is now performing with AtleticoMineiro and it seems like it’s where he belongs as he has managed to make into the team of the week on numerous occasions.
After disappointing with Europe, at least Robinhois enjoying himself with Braziland doing impressive performances and he will probably spend the last few years of his career performing in his native country which is the best thing that Robinho can do after failing to prove his worth in the biggest stages of the world.
