City manager Mark Hughes says Robinho gets overly criticised and that expectations are unrealistic.
Manchester City, who play Aalborg at home Thursday night in the UEFA Cup, have struggled away from home this season. Only one win in the last 16 games away, and Robinho seems to be blamed all the time.
"At times Robinho gets overly criticised. When we have not played well away from home, he seems to get the brunt of it because he is one of our most high-profile players. But people have to take into account that he is one of our more creative and attack-minded players and teams will try to make sure he doesn't have a positive impact," he said.
"As I keep stressing, the expectations some people have for us are a little bit unrealistic," added Hughes.
