The 36-year-old has returned to join his childhood club for a third stint as a free agent, having left the Turkish team Istanbul Basaksehir shortly after helping them win their first Super Lig title last season.
“I will play on minimum wage, but the most important thing is to be here,” said Robinho the club’s official website on Friday.
“I am good physically and mentally, obviously there is still a bit of rhythm [missing], but over time we will evolve gradually. “
He won two national championships, two Paulista tournaments and the Brazilian Cup in his previous two seasons with Santos.
“I have lots of good memories here,” added Robinho. “The fans can be sure that I will do my best to help Santos FC on and off the pitch.
Santos FC is going through tough financial times. So it is time for those who can do something. I want to help a club that always gives me everything. Santos FC has done a lot for me and these returns are still small. . “
Santos is currently experiencing financial difficulties and could soon face a transfer ban from FIFA due to outstanding debts.
Chilean club Huachipato is suing Santos for completing a $ 3.4 million deal for the signing of Venezuelan striker Jefferson Soteldo, while Colombian side Atletico Nacional claim they still owe $ 774,000 from the sale of defender Felipe Aguilar.
