Brazilian star Robinho is ready to feature for Manchester City against Hull City at the weekend.
The Samba superstar has not played for City since August after suffering an ankle fracture.
Despite his injury he linked up with Brazil earlier this month, but he did not feature.
He was expected to play against Liverpool last week, but he did not make the squad for the clash at Anfield.
Instead Robinho will be back for the clash with Hull at Eastlands.
"Robi is looking really good. We are pleased, after all the speculation when he went with Brazil, he didn't play for them because he wasn't ready," City first-team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki said.
"He had good training and good treatment with them and has come back to us looking sharper by the day.
"Things are looking very promising for him in terms of the weekend and he should be up for selection."
