Millionaire kicks for minimum wage!
He played for Real Madrid, AC Milan and Manchester City – now Robinho (36) is storming at a bargain price. The Brazilian signed a five-month contract with his home club Santos.
Robinho will play there at least until the end of February, and according to “Marca” he should only collect 1,500 reales per month. That corresponds to about 230 euros and is just above the minimum wage in Brazil.
Most recently, the former superstar was Turkish champion with Basaksehir Istanbul, then terminated his contract in Turkey and is returning to his homeland free of charge. He has earned enough money in the past, including playing football in China.
The former national player (100 caps) on club TV: “It’s wonderful that I can come back and be part of a top project in football. At the club where I grew up. “
Robinho wants to help the traditional club, where legend Pelé (79) and Neymar (28 / PSG) have played. Because FC Santos is in financial difficulties and is about to receive a transfer ban from Fifa for an indefinite period of time.
About the mini-salary, Robinho says: “It is a difficult moment financially, not only for football, but for the whole world. I am glad that I can help. “
