Hughes Retort To Real: Man. City Is Going Places
Daily Telegraph, September 18th, 2008 2:30PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has responded to Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster's claim that Brazilian striker Robinho is content to be "a big player at a mediocre club" by having made the $58 million move from Real to City.
 
"Bernd is obviously a bit emotional about the situation," Hughes said. "He has lost one of his best players and I know for a fact he didn't want him to go. I tried to get through to him several times [on transfer deadline day] but couldn't. He obviously knew what I was going to ask."
 
"Nobody goes to Real Madrid and takes their best players without them being able to do anything," Hughes said. "Straightaway, it's a statement of intent. It's not our aim to be a mid-table club for a couple of years. Robinho has come to a team he feels is going places. Maybe, in a few years, Bernd will change his view."
