No problem with Hughes insists Robinho
Robinho insists he does not have any problems with Manchester City manager Mark Hughes.
The Brazil forward is facing disciplinary action after leaving the club's training camp in Tenerife without permission.
Robinho returned home to Santos, claiming he had to deal with a family matter.
He says he intends leaving in the next few days and expects to face Newcastle on 28 January.
There has been talk of a rift with Hughes but Robinho says that is not the case.
"I have a good relationship with Mark Hughes and have always respected his decisions," he stated on his official website. "He is the boss!"
Robinho, who arrived from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day for a British record fee of £32.5m, feels he has settled in well to life in England.
"I like living in Manchester and I have made many friends at the club and at the city, since I arrived last year," he said.
"I admire the Manchester City fans, who are true lovers of football and loyal to the players.
"I am looking forward to delivering as many goals as possible to help our team move to the next level".
However he could find himself hit in the pocket for leaving Tenerife one day into the training camp.
Executive chairman Garry Cook has already indicated that if he feels a breach of club discipline has occurred, Robinho can expect to receive a fine unless his version of events deems the move unnecessary.
