Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari insisted Friday that the failure to sign his fellow Brazilian Robinho would be no loss to the Premier League club this season.

Robinho made a shock last-minute switch to Manchester City on transfer deadline day after Chelsea refused to meet Real Madrid's 40 million euros asking price.

“This is not a problem for me,” Scolari told www.chelseafc.com. “I have many great players and I am very happy with my team. I am receiving new players from injuries as (Didier) Drogba will be back soon.

“(John) Mikel (Obi) recovers well. (Michael) Ballack and (Michael) Essien played with injuries but both are getting better.

“They are an example of the fantastic characters I have in my squad.

“I don't think the people around Robinho were serious about him coming to Chelsea.

“They were more interested in the best business deal. But what I've said before about Robinho I say again now. He's a very good player. I only wish him the best.

“I have seen the newspapers and that they say I am unhappy or angry with the club. These statements are not true at all.

“I have not said this and I do not think this. I am very happy with this situation.”
