Robinho has lost his mind

Everyone's favorite traveling salesman is officially batsh*t insane. Robinho has fired his agent, Wagner Ribeiro, the one that not only got him his record-setting transfer to Manchester City, but a previous record-setting transfer to Real Madrid. Who is replacing Ribeiro? Robinho's dad, of course!
