Manchester City flop Robinho blames Premier League for holding him back

Robinho has hit out at English football for crushing his style as he promised to show his true talents at AC Milan. The 26-year-old quit Manchester City on transfer deadline day almost two years after arriving from Real Madrid for a British record £32.5million. Despite considering himself among the best in the world, he left the Barclays Premier League with his reputation in tatters and a return of just 16 goals. Italian job: Brazil star Robinho expects to be a big hit with the San Siro giants 'Of course, I didn't do my best (at City),' he said. 'It doesn't only depend on me, but on the whole group. 'I had no problem with (manager Roberto) Mancini. I always had a good relationship with him, but the problem is that English football is not so good for Brazilians, it's not my style. 'I wish success to Mancini, but life goes on. I want to make my name here. 'I am confident of succeeding with Milan because they have very good Brazilians. It's a club that always wants to play, has welcomed us very well and where many have made history. I hope the same happens to me.'   Sharp shooter: Robinho was better in a Brazil shirt than the light blue of City  Robinho unveiled in glitzy ceremony by AC Milan after quitting Man CitySign up to our FREE Fantasy Football game - with £40,000 in prize money up for grabsBlue Moon Rising: The light side of Man City's rise makes essential viewingNeville: Now I hate Manchester City more than LiverpoolInter to scupper Chelsea's move for Kaka should crocked star leave RealMANCHESTER CITY FC
