Robinho has moved to dispel speculation that he is unhappy at Manchester City after he was reported to have walked out on the club during a training camp in Tenerife.
The Brazilian was reported to have flown back to Brazil after a row with City boss Mark Hughes, but has since maintained that he has no problem with the club.
A statement on his website said: ”He’s very happy at Manchester City. He believes in the club’s project, on its promises and proposals and has no intention of leaving his new home. There has been a lack of communication somewhere, but nothing has changed.
”Since last week Robinho had asked for the club’s permission to travel, in order to solve some family problems. Therefore, after training at Tenerife on Monday he left for Brazil, with his wife and baby and will be back in a short few days.
”He will for sure be playing on Wednesday against Newcastle and, as usual, will give his all to help the club to achieve victory. He is very motivated and says he wants to be the league’s top scorer. Therefore, while in Brazil with the family, he will be excersing and keeping fit for the upcoming match.
”Robinho was cheering for Kaka and hopes that the club will soon find a replacement as high level as Kaka is.”
Earlier, City’s executive chairman Garry Cook told the BBC: “I do know Robinho is not at the training centre in Tenerife.
“If he has left the training ground it is a breach of club discipline. I am waiting for a full debrief.”
