Robinho reminded of Capello's Madrid

Robinho claims this current Milan side reminds him of Fabio Capello's Real Madrid in the 2006-07 season.

The Brazil international played his part in that title win, making 32 appearances. He also scored six goals.

"This Milan reminds me of Capello's Real Madrid," Robinho said. "Capello's Real Madrid had many champions in its ranks.

"The Italian tactician managed to find the right balance between desire, actually the necessity, to propose spectacular football and the solidity that we needed to win La Liga.

"We wanted to win. But we also wanted to win entertaining. Milan have taken the same path. Allegri is a great teacher just like Capello was.

"It's clear. Milan remain a Brazilian team. Having fun with the ball is natural for us. Ibra, who is a monster in terms of power, has delicate feet.

"It's easy to play with him in the tight spaces."

When asked about speculation regarding the future of his teammate Ronaldinho, Robinho said: "He is a No 1. When he is 100 per cent in shape he will become a ruthless weapon in Allegri's hands.

"He can invent an assist or a decisive goal in an instant. He is 'Dinho. A No 1."
