Robinho: Mythical Hero

Robinho, probably the most elegant player I have ever seen in the flesh—when he has the ball, it’s like he’s riding a bloody magic carpet to dreamland, nimble as a prancing squirrel on a telephone wire, as Ray Hudson might say—just keeps getting better. From the Press:

“…Robinho, Ronaldinho and other players attended a party that went on for hours and was complete with alcohol, sex and furtive escapes by footballers as they left the nightclub.

Moreover, O Globo said that at one point Robinho – who had been seen dancing with a voluptuous blonde – asked a security guard ‘for 40 condoms,’ adding that the Real Madrid player left the disco at 5 am.

The 23-year-old Robinho’s involvement in similar activities has been documented in the past. In January, Spanish media accused him of turning up to a Real Madrid training session drunk – an allegation that was not denied by the club.”

If there are any “kids” reading this, please: Don’t try whatever Robinho thought he was going to try unless you’ve consulted a physician.
