Brazil forward Robinho rejoins Santos
Veteran Brazilian striker Robinho has returned to his youth club Santos, which he left as a 21-year-old aspiring star at Real Madrid before playing for Manchester City and AC Milan.
The 36-year-old has signed a five-month contract and paid the nominal amount of around 230 euros per month with bonuses and an extension if all goes well.
"This has always been my home. It is special to come back here to where my career began," he said.
He is currently a refugee from the Italian judiciary who was sentenced to prison for rape in Italy in 2017.
Robinho rose to fame with scoring goals for the Rio team that produced Neymar and Pele before Real Madrid signed him to a huge fanfare in 2006.
Robinho, a short and extremely talented center forward, won championship titles with Real and Milan and won the Copa America and the Confederations Cup 100 times for Brazil.
