Robinho has again reiterated his contentment with life at Manchester City amid renewed speculation over his future.
After initially impressing upon his shock move to Eastlands prior to the close of the summer transfer window, the Brazilian has faded badly in the second half of the season.
His displays away from home have particularly frustrated but with City still going strong in the Uefa Cup, Robinho insists he is concentrating solely on delivering silverware.
Having scored 12 times this season, Robinho's debut campaign in England has hardly been a disaster and looking upon his time at City as a long-term project, he predicts longevity in his Manchester sojourn.
Robinho told The Sun: "I know about rumours linking me with different teams but I am not pre-occupied by them. My head only has time for City and I want to be the star of this club.
"I am totally convinced City can win the Uefa Cup. A title in my first season in England will be magnificent.
"City are preparing an enormous project for next season and I am totally focused on this adventure. We could really be big in the table in a few months."
Meanwhile, winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has revealed winning the Uefa Cup would mean more than any of the medals he picked up at Chelsea.
The 27-year-old won a Premier League title, League Cup and FA Cup with the Londoners but struggled to hold down a regular place and returned to City last summer.
Wright-Phillips told the Daily Express: "I said when I rejoined City that it was like coming home. This is the club where it all started for me so winning one thing here would mean as much as maybe three trophies down there.
"I know how long it is since this club won something. It would be an overwhelming feeling to win a trophy that I'd have played a major part in."
City travel to Hamburg in the first leg of their Uefa Cup quarter-final on Thursday.
