Robinho signed a 6 month long contract with the Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande back in July of 2015 and the Brazilian player has managed to score 3 goals in 9 league appearances but his time in Asia is limited to only half a year unless that he decides extend his contract with the team which is being coached by Luiz Felipe Scolari.
A few months ago, back when Robinho was performing for Santos on a loan deal, the Brazilian player stated that he wanted to make a return to Brazil and spend the last few years of his career playing in his homeland. The former player of Ac.Milan now seems to be unsure about his near future.
The 31 year old player said: “I still haven’t decided. I don’t know yet. Now I’m just thinking about resting and enjoying the holidays. When I am playing I don’t have time for anything else. Then, around the 10th or the 15th of January, I will decide if I will stay in Brazil or if I’m going to keep playing abroad.”
Even though it has only been less than a year since Robinho joined the Chinese outfit Guangzhou Evergrande, he has already aided in their journey of lifting the Chinese Super League and also helped them in reaching the semi-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup as they defeated America in the quarter-finals but were eventually knocked out in the semi-finals after facing off with Barcelona.
Nonetheless, making it so far in the tournament is still a huge accomplishment which deserves recognition as they really weren’t expected to reach those advanced stages.
If Robinho continues making impressive performances in the Chinese club, he might see his contract extended to a period longer than the initial 6 months but when his time with the Asian outfit reaches it’s end, it’s likely that he will be making a return to Brazil as he has stated on numerous ocassions his desire to retire in his native land.
