Craig Bellamy insists he has no problems with Manchester City team-mate Robinho.

Reports on Sunday suggested the pair were at loggerheads with each other after an exchange of words following the recent defeat by Portsmouth.

It was claimed Robinho was no longer talking to Bellamy and that the Welshman was trying to lead a players' revolt against the Brazilian.

However, Bellamy says he is a big admirer of Robinho and rates the former Real Madrid ace as the club's most important player.

"I am a massive admirer of Robinho. I adore him as a player," Bellamy told the club's official website.

"How could you not? He is an exceptional talent. A lot of teams know how good he is, too, and set out to stop him.

Talisman"He is our talisman and when people think of Manchester City at the moment it is Robinho and that is a worldwide thing.

"He is our biggest player by a mile and our best player and for us he is a man who needs to be performing at his best every week."

Meanwhile, City have confirmed that reserve defender Ben Mee has signed a two-year contract at Eastlands.
