Sylvinho talks up Robi

Praise from his new teammate:
"He is really happy that the club has now got Adebayor and Tevez, because that helps him a lot."

"It puts this club on a different level, and it does the same for Robinho. He is one of the best players in Brazil and plays for the national team, so this kind of help will be really important to him."

"I don't like to compare players, or clubs or coaches. In the world there are five or six different players who are at a high level, and Robinho is one of them."
It will be interesting to see if Robinho and Sylvinho strike up quite the same friendship as Robinho did with his former Santos teammate Elano. One Brazilian commenter - Da C.I.A. - suggested that there might be tension between Robinho and Sylvinho as the latter played for Corinthians - Santos' great rivals in São Paulo - never mind the Barcelona / Real Madrid rivalry, as well there might be with Tévez - who spent two years at Corinthians long after Sylvinho had left.
