Former Manchester City striker Robinho said Saturday that he felt at home at new club AC Milan, a team he claimed had “Brazilian blood”.
“In Milan I feel like I’m at home. I have some great friends like Dinho, Pato and Thiago Silva,” he told la Gazetta dello sport newspaper.
“The ‘rossonera’ has Brazilian blood. You can understand why I’m pleased with the transfer.
“I prefer not to speak about City,” said the 26-year-old of his English experience, adding that he dreamt of a Champions League final between Milan and Barcelona.
“They’re the two best teams at the moment. Milan has made some good signings. On paper, we’re good, but we have to become a team that wins on the pitch.”
Milan fans desperate to see the red and black tilt the dominance of city rivals Inter will hope that Robinho, signed for 18 million euros just two years after City had stumped up 42 million, forms a potent strikeforce alongside fellow new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Sweden.
Winner of the Copa America in 2007, in which he was top scorer with six goals, Robinho was champion in Brazil in 2002 and 2004 with Santos, and Spanish champion in 2007 and 2008 with Real Madrid.
