London, Sep 4 : Brazilian legend Pele reckons that his fellow countryman Robinho 'needs counselling' for turning his back on a move to England's premier club Chelsea.

"Chelsea is lucky. This boy needs some serious counseling. He has been badly advised," The Sun quoted Pele, as saying.

Former Real coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo added: "If you want to become the best, you need a team with possibilities to shine. I don't know if his football or his career will go back at City."

The Manchester City player caused a big shock in Brazil when he opted for a 32.5million pound switch to Eastlands.

That came after he had spent the previous few weeks trying to engineer a move away from Real Madrid and expressing his wish to go to Chelsea.

Many believe Robinho moved just for the reported 95,000 pound-a-week offered by City.
