Robinho missing after City walkout

 

Robinho has left Manchester City's training camp in Tenerife and the club do not know where their record signing is.

 

The club have given no official reason for the forward's departure and admitted they are unsure of his whereabouts, although it is thought he has returned home to Brazil.

 

"I do know Robinho is not at the training centre in Tenerife," said executive chairman Garry Cook.

 

"If he has left the training ground it is a breach of club discipline. I am waiting for a full debrief."

 

City do not play again until January 28, as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest and have no fourth-round fixture this weekend.

 

It is another dose of bad news following Kaka's rejection of a lucrative transfer from Milan late on Monday night.

 

There were reports that Brazilian members of the City squad - Robinho, Elano and Jo - were among those who talked Kaka out of the move, which would have netted him an estimated £500,000 a week.

 

Those claims are unlikely ever to be verified but City officials are now struggling to control the adverse publicity and uncertainty over Robinho's whereabouts.

 

City smashed the British transfer record when they splashed out £32.5 million on the 24-year-old in August last year.

 

Widely assumed to be joining Chelsea, Robinho plumped for City when Real Madrid refused to do business with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

 

On a personal level, Robinho has been a success, netting 12 goals for his new club - all but one of which have come in the Premier League - and becoming an instant hit with the City faithful.

 

However, City's failure to establish themselves in the top half of the table under manager Mark Hughes is bound to be a source of disappointment.

 

The forward has even offered Hughes advice over team-building, claiming last week that although he would like to see Kaka at Eastlands, defensive reinforcements should be the priority.

 

Interesting, I think they should punish him by banning him from playing in the next match... <_<
