Robinho names Manchester City player he ‘fought’ before leaving Etihad 

Former Manchester City winger, Robinho has revealed that he fought with former teammate, Craig Bellamy before he left the Etihad Stadium on transfer deadline day in August, 2010.

Robinho, who currently plays for Turkish side, Sivasspor had a dressing-room altercation with Bellamy before his exit.

“I had a fight with him [Bellamy] once, but then who at City didn’t?,” Robinho told FourFourTwo.

“Some other players had problems with Bellamy, too; he was very explosive. In one game we played against Arsenal, I didn’t have a great first half so he started yelling at me in English when we got back to the dressing room at half-time.

“I didn’t understand it, but from the little I could work out, I could tell he wasn’t saying nice things.

“Glauber [the Brazilian centre-back who made one City appearance] then helped me by pushing him away, and he quickly calmed down.

“I had just come back from a marathon of a journey to play for Brazil and I was feeling very tired. But it was OK, and he came to me the next day and asked me to forgive him.”
