Robinho Lazaró wasn't the only one who thought he was kind of a big deal. Upon picking up the ringing phone that broke the calm of his villa up in the Colombian hills he noticed the incoming call was coming from England.
Colombian / Brazilian manager Roberto Nascimento da Silva Lazaró, to give him his full Brazilian name, was settling nicely into life in Sao Paulo. Despite being a little concerned by Palmeiras' defensive strengths, he had a superstar striker and lots of young talent to work with.
