Robinho insists he is happy at Manchester City and left the club's training camp in Tenerife to return to Brazil for family reasons.

The former Real Madrid forward left the Canary island on Monday amid speculation he stormed out following the club's failure to complete a deal for AC Milan star Kaka.

However Robinho told BBC Sport: "I had made Manchester City aware that I needed to return to Brazil because of a family matter. I will return to the club and hope to sort this out as soon as possible."
