Several top footballers trapped at Eastlands after Rob’s sick joke

Evil genius Robinho has revealed a practical joke by him has left some of the world’s best footballers stranded at Manchester City while he lords it up at AC Milan.

The Brazilian speed merchant reckons the club was only able to convince top players to sign for them because they were following in his footsteps. His following flock of international talent is now stuck in a Champions League-less hell, while he jumped ship to the San Siro.

He said:

“I believe it was good for me and for City, because I opened the doors for other big players to come to City. Maybe if I hadn’t signed there, no other big player would have signed there. I was the first of the big players present in this club. So it was good.”

Yeah, good one, Robbie. We hope you know these are people’s careers you are messing with.
