Humiliated Robinho on his way out of Manchester City as Mancini gets tough

Robinho looks to be heading out of Manchester City after suffering the embarrassment of being substituted by manager Roberto Mancini 51 minutes after coming off the bench. City's £32.5million signing was given the chance to impress as a ninth-minute replacement for the injured Roque Santa Cruz at Everton on Saturday, but the Brazilian was taken off on the hour after a negligible contribution to his side's 2-0 defeat. Mancini did little to back his player, saying: 'Does he have a future here? All players try to work hard during the week in training and that is the most important thing. If he wants a future here, then, yes, that is what he has to do. Walk of shame: Robinho is substituted against Everton by Roberto Mancini 'I thought Robinho could have been a big player for us here, but sometimes a player is on form and sometimes he is off. 'I wanted to change the situation in the second half and if that means taking him off, then I will. I cannot worry about him, only about the result.' City are likely to sell their Brazilian misfit for a sizeable fee in the summer.  Everton 2 Manchester City 0: Toffees' hard graft is a lesson for Roberto Mancini and CityMancini delivers clear message to underachieving striker RobinhoSir Alex Ferguson insists City can afford to buy anyone... even Lionel MessiMANCHESTER CITY FC
