Manchester City star Robinho has moved to end speculation linking him with a summer move away from Eastlands by pledging his future to the club. The 25-year-old Brazilian international has netted 13 times in 37 appearances in all competitions for the Blues this season following his £32.5 million arrival from Real Madrid last summer. And having weathered reports of a fall-out with manager Mark Hughes and criticism for his goalscoring drought, the trickster finally found the net for his club for the first time since December in the 4-2 win against West Bromwich Albion last weekend and insists he is happy. “There are no regrets on my part about coming here. Of course this is only my first year, and I try to get better and better every year," he said. "Hopefully in the future I will be even happier at this football club. "My relationship with the manager is very good. Our manager is a very good manager, an excellent manager. Of course expectations are high over how the team will do. But my aim is to remain here for a long time to come. "The manager gives me total confidence, and he and the whole team help me to produce my best football for the club. "That goal gives me a lot more confidence to score more in the matches that we have left." CITY FANS!
