Robinho leaps to defence of coach Dunga

Robinho has leapt to the defence of under-fire Brazil coach Dunga, admitting he hopes the former Selecao captain will remain at the helm until the World Cup.

The 44-year-old has come in for criticism from the media, who were calling for his head after Brazil's failure to claim gold at the Beijing Olympics.

But Manchester City forward Robinho said: "Dunga is our coach, our commander, and we all hope he stays until the World Cup in 2010."

Brazil saw off Chile 3-0 on Sunday to alleviate some of the pressure on the 1994 World Cup-winner, but Robinho knows a defeat to Bolivia in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday would see the heat turned up again.

"Pressure is big here and we push it away only by winning," the former Santos and Real Madrid attacker said.

"Our goal is to clinch the three points and only in securing them will we think about playing nice football.

"Brazil can beat any other national team in the world, but we can also lose to any other."
