City offer Robinho support

28 January 2009 05:50
Manchester City insist Robinho has their full support after the Brazil international was questioned by police following allegations of a serious sexual assault in Leeds. The 25-year-old was quizzed by West Yorkshire Police in relation to an incident which occurred on January 14, but his spokesman was at pains to confirm that his client had done nothing wrong. A statement from Chris Nathaniel read: "We can confirm that Robinho met the police today (Tuesday), as pre-arranged and as part of a criminal investigation. "He strenuously denies any allegation of wrongdoing or criminality and is happy to co-operate with the police if required further." Robinho has recently been in trouble with his club for leaving a warm-weather training camp in Tenerife to attend to personal issues back in South America. However, a statement from City read: "The club have been liaising with and assisting both the player in question and the authorities in relation to the West Yorkshire Police investigation. "Both parties have been given the full support of the football club. No charges of any nature have been brought against the player and no further statement will be made whilst the investigation is continuing."
