Robinho Wants Brazil Comeback

share on:

Brazilian forward Robinho will welcome a call up to the Brazil squad after completing his move to Atletico Mineiro.

Robinho endured a short stint in China before moving to Mineiro, despite talks linking him with Leicester and Santos.

And the Brazilian who struggled for time under Scolari at Evergrande, wants to break into Dunga’s team.

“My aim is to return to the national team. But first I need to play well,” he told the media at his official Atletico presentation.

Robinho also denied he is obsessed with winning the Copa Libertadores, but admitted the chance to lift South America’s top club prize was part of the motivation behind a move back to Brazil.

“It’s not an obsession, but it’s an important trophy that I still don’t have,” he said. “Now I have the chance to be a champion with Atletico Mineiro and that’s my objective.

“I’m very motivated, very happy. I thank the players and the fans for the reception. I’m at a great club and I hope to help Atletico compete in every competition.

“I know the effort the board made. Atletico have been talking to me for a long time and I’m sure I’ve made the best choice.

“I have a lot of respect for Santos, but now I hope to write a story as beautiful or even more so at Atletico.”
