    Size of Prem players surprised me and Robinho at Manchester City

    Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho may be flourishing at Manchester City but former Brazilian international Jo has revealed that it wasn't always so easy for Selecao players at the Etihad Stadium. The Corinthians striker joined City in 2008 for a then-club record £20 million but struggled to make an impact, scoring just one Premier League goal for the club. His arrival preceded the takeover by owner Sheikh Mansour and the club was quickly transformed with Jo soon followed by compatriot Robinho in an incredible £32.5m deal. The former Real Madrid player scored on his debut against Chelsea but Jo says he didn't realise what the Premier League was all about until the following week when they faced Portsmouth.
