'Much expected of Robinho'

Robinho’s agent has mused that ‘it is normal to expect a lot’ from the Brazilian, amid whistles from the San Siro support.

The forward has come under scrutiny for recent inconsistency for the Rossoneri and been whistled by sections of the home support.

However, Robinho’s agent has defended the crowd’s response as a natural reaction to what is expected of the 30-year-old.

“I interpret the discontent as expectations in relation to a very talented player,” Marisa Ramos has mused to milannews.it today.

“From a player like Robinho, it is normal to expect a lot. Robinho, on the other hand, has always been treated very well at Milan and managed important thing with individual play of great quality.

“The value of the player is known and therefore always a lot is expected. And even though he is going through a difficult moment, perhaps the fans always expect 100 per cent.

“Clearly the situation makes him sad, but he is aware that the whistles are due to the fact that we expect a lot from him on account of his quality.

“Would he consider a return to Brazil because of this? No. Robinho is a professional and understands that he must put in a better performance.

“He has a contract with the Rossoneri and wants to repay them.”
