Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Manchester City star Robinho is worth every penny of his record-breaking price tag.

City swooped for the former Real Madrid player in a £32.5million deal, a British record, on the final day of the summer transfer window.

And ahead of Sunday's Manchester derby in the Premier League, a match which can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 and HD 1, Ferguson has poured praise on Robinho.

The United boss believes the Brazilian's chipped goal against Arsenal last weekend is more than enough justification for the fee paid by City.

Audacity
"You think £32million, is he worth it?" said Ferguson.

"When he scores goals like that you have to say yes.

"The audacity and composure were absolutely brilliant. Maybe he is not in the game a lot but he produces these moments that others cannot do."

Ferguson is also aware City boss Mark Hughes will have had to devote plenty of attention to Robinho in an effort to ensure his transition to life in England has been as smooth as possible.


Culture
"It is always the same, whether a player costs £32m or £2m," said Ferguson.

"When they come from another country you have a job to do in terms of how they interact with other players, adapt to a different culture and learn the language.

"There are a lot of things you have to do with these players, not just from Brazil and Argentina but all countries.

"That is what I find is fantastic about today's game. I have 17 different nationalities at this club. It is a fantastic challenge to deal with the situation and make sure there is harmony in the place."

Man ..... Fergie is just being gracious.

Come January and February, and it's a cold, rotten night somewhere like Sunderland or Stoke, we'll see if Robinho is worth 32mil and we'll see if the rest of the man city mercenaries can be bothered,.......

Robinho has light moments in every match, so he is not a bad player, but he seems to be something like mercenary to me. He doesn't care about the club he's playing for. He just accumulates money on his account.
