The Brazilian arrived at the Turkish side in 2019 and has been described by the club as an « exemplary athlete » and « humble ».

He was the Citizens’ first big-money signing when they gazumped Chelsea to seal a £32.5million deal in 2008, breaking the British transfer record at the time.

The Brazilian forward had made a name for himself playing for Real Madrid before – netting 35 goals in 137 matches for Los Blancos.

He had a promising start to his career in England, scoring 14 goals for City in the 2008-09 season.

However, he only featured in 10 games the following campaign and, having fallen out with Roberto Mancini, sought more playing time on loan at Santos.

Robinho then moved to AC Milan in 2010 where his career seemed to be getting back on track.

In four seasons, he scored 32 goals and added 31 assists for the Italian giants – helping them winning their last Serie A trophy back in 2011.

Before moving to Turkey he travelled back-and-forth between Brazil and China, where he spent a season playing for Guangzhou Evergrande in 2015.

In 2017 Robinho was found guilty of sexually assault in a Milan nightclub in 2013 and sentenced to nine-years in prison.
