Luis Enrique aware of Robinho threat

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique pays tribute to the quality of Guangzhou Evergrande forward Robinho ahead of Thursday's Club World Cup semi-final.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has said that his team will keep a close eye on experienced Brazilian Robinho in Thursday's Club World Cup semi-final.

Barca will open their 2015 challenge with a last-four clash against Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande, whom Robinho, 31, joined earlier this year.

Robinho has plenty of experience facing Barcelona following his time with Real Madrid, and Enrique has insisted that his side will need to keep the experienced Brazilian in check.

"Robinho? He's 31 and that's a wonderful age to play football. He could be at his most fulfilled. I don't know if he is. He played through the middle in the quarter-final. He's a player of top quality," Enrique told reporters.

Robinho has scored three times in nine games for his current club.
