Robinho refutes claims over sporting ambition

Robinho has refuted claims by Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon that he did not move to Manchester City for 'sporting reasons' - insisting City can be as successful as Chelsea.

'I am here for sporting reasons, of course,' he insisted. 'I consider City no less than Chelsea. They have a bigger ground, they want to make great progress. I am here from the start.

'They showed their ambition with a bigger proposal than Chelsea. It is not correct what Calderon has said.'

Calderon has hit out at Robinho over the way he allegedly engineered his move away from the Bernabeu. The Brazilian held a press conference on Sunday demanding to move to Chelsea and was also reported to have threatened to return home to Brazil and never return.

Calderon said on Monday: 'The fact that he has accepted an offer from Manchester City says that he is not going for sporting reasons.

'(Coach Bernd) Schuster thought until yesterday that he could recover the player, but that has not been the case. Every time I have spoken with him he was very sad, crying and asking to leave Spain. Real Madrid are more important than any one player.

'He's a great kid, but badly advised.'

Robinho has promised to show Chelsea what they missed out on - and he will get his chance very quickly as City's next fixture is against Luiz Felipe Scolari's side.

'I like this fixture as my first game,' Robinho told the Daily Mail. 'Brazilians are used to playing under pressure.

'You cannot play for Brazil without understanding how to cope with pressure. It comes with the job. It would be a good game to play well.

'I'm used to dealing with the physical power of defenders. It isn't easy in Spain, you know? I'd like to play well for my team-mates and for the supporters and to score two goals.'
