In Sundays match against Hull manager Mark Hughes opted for Robinho as team leader because regular captain Richard Dunne was suspended for the game.
´I thought Robinho responded well, but I had seen good signs against Spurs. He enjoyed it, enjoyed meeting the referee beforehand and it was something I think he deserved it,´ said Mark Hughes.
The match at the KC Stadium in Hull ended in a 2-2 draw with Hull scoring the first goal through Daniel Cousin in the 14. minute and after Stephen Ireland with two goals before the break gave Manchester City a 2-1 lead. Brazilian Geovani equalized for Hull in the second half on a free kick.
´Today Robinho was always available, great on the ball and I think he led from the front. He´s a great player, but what I don´t think he gets credit for is that he is brave and determined, and he wants to win with Manchester City. That was evident in his performance today,´ said Mark Hughes.
Manchester City are still only one point above the relegation zone after 13 rounds and play next Saturday at home against Arsenal.
