'I'm happy at City' insists Robinho

Manchester City's record signing Robinho has ruled out an imminent return to Brazil with Santos.

Robinho was the subject of speculation in his homeland as he prepared for the World Cup qualifier against Paraguay on Wednesday.

However, he was keen to put the record straight and confirmed he would remain at Eastlands.

"I am very happy at City. Santos are the team of my heart and one day I want to go back, but not now," he told www.mcfc.co.uk.

"I am very happy with the affection demonstrated by the fans in the final match against Bolton.

"The incentives shouted by the crowd, directed at my team-mate Glauber Berti in the final minutes, demonstrated how passionate City's fans are.

"I am very happy and proud to play in a club that has such wonderful followers."
