Craig Bellamy says that Robinho was his most disappointing teammate at Manchester City.

Bellamy joined City in January 2009, and spent just a few months in the same side as Robinho, who left the following January.

Robinho became City’s club-record signing in summer 2008 after moving from Real Madrid, but left after scoring a disappointing 16 goals in 53 games.

Bellamy, who boasted a similar record of 15 goals in 51 games, spoke fondly of the Brazilian, but says he “let me down”.

“The one player – and I quite liked him as a person at times – was Robinho, with all the ability he had, which was astonishing at times,” he told The Debate on Sky Sports.

“He just let me down. I just felt he was such a top player, but, the feeling I had was he was too big for Man Cty at that time – and us players who were with him were lucky to be with him.

“That was a real disappointment for me.”
