AC Milan new-boy Robinho says that he wants to score against his old side Real Madrid as the two most successful sides in the Champions League meet on Tuesday.
Robinho left the Bernabeu in 2008 to join Manchester City for £32.5 million and now plies his trade in Milan after two unsuccessful years in England. However, while he admitted that he would love to hit the back of the net against Jose Mourinho's men, the Brazilian was quick to show he is a team player first and foremost.
"I would love to score a goal in the Champions League against Real Madrid," he told Marca. "But it's not important for me to score, as long as we can win. I want to score important goals, but also give my assistance to the team.
"If we can win at the Bernabeu then it will give us massive confidence and an understanding of our own strengths."
Only a few days ago, the forward claimed he was happy to sit on the bench as Milan have a host of talented attacking players (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ronaldinho and Pato) who will provide him with competition for places.
"He (Massimiliano Allegri) is helping me to understand Milan and Italian football,'' he told Gazzetta dello Sport. "It's clear that it will not be easy to see a team with four attackers on the pitch. It's a question of balance.
"But our coach always makes us feel like regulars, like we're all important. I assure you that I would never protest against a Sunday spent on the bench."
Ibra develops team mentality
AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has come to realise the importance of teamwork.

Ibrahimovic has been accused of selfishness during his career, but he was praised for the support he gave his team-mates against Chievo this weekend and says he has adapted his philosophy.
"I am now looking to work a lot for the team," he told Gazzetta dello Sport. "At the start of your career, you want to get yourself recognised and you are more individualist.
"Then you understand that the group is more important than the individual and that you can only go far with the team.
"When my team-mates are happy, I am happy, too, because when I join a team I kill myself for my team-mates. If they win, I win, too."
