Carry on feuding: Hughes happy for Bellamy to fire up team-mate Robinho

Mark Hughes has praised Craig Bellamy for adding fire to the dressing room following the Manchester City

striker's clash with record signing Robinho.

The players rowed after City's defeat at Portsmouth

recently, but boss Hughes says it was no big deal.

'There has been a lot said about it but players have been raising voices and speaking to each other in the dressing room for years and years,' said Hughes, according to The Sun.

'People want to jump on a situation and maybe it's because of the individuals involved. But it's healthy and important players can voice an opinion and I always encourage that.'

Bellamy, signed for £12million from West Ham in January, is certainly not one to bite his tongue.

Hughes said: 'The other players like Craig and we need people such as him as the dressing room is too quiet.
