Robinho Out Of Action For Another Three Weeks

Robinho Out Of Action For Another Three Weeks

Manchester City's Premier League record signing Robinho faces another three weeks on the sidelines as he recovers from injury according to City boss Mark Hughes.

He explained: 'It is still in a pot, so he [Robinho] is not training, just doing work in the gym.'

'I would imagine it would be another two to three weeks.'

Hughes has been struggling for available strikers over the past few weeks with Bellamy as City's only 100% fit option.

Robinho, Tevez, Santa Cruz and Benjani have all been suffering with knocks or injuries, while Adebayor was hit with a three match ban for his stamp on Van Percie.

Hughes will be relieved that he now has Tevez, Santa Cruz and Adebayor back in contention for a starting berth along-side the excellent Bellamy, while Martin Petrov has proved his worth as cover for Robinho on the left-wing.

Well this was hardly surprising as this is exactly what I expected to be honest. The problem for Robinho now is if we keep scoring freely where will he fit in? I couldn't imagine myself saying this when he joined the club or even 2-3 weeks ago to be perfectly honest.

As good as Bellers is, can he really get through a full season without injury. Hughes was reluctant to play him in three matches in a week and he is full of running, Robinho gives us that extra dimension and at home he is devastating. The art of management is to not burn out your players but keep them all ticking over nicely. It will have to be rotation and they will need to perform on the field when they do get a start.

at the moment the way we are playing this might be a blessing because whilst robbie is injured he cant moan about not being in the team. - bellers deserves his chance the way he has played this season.

I'd rather leave Bellamy in and take Tevez out for Robbie (playing him just behind Ade)

We are not missing the lad in any way shape or form right now. Maybe his absence will increase his hunger. Sparky has some terrific options this season.

At the moment we are not missing Robbie but when he is fit i think he'lk come back a far better player.
