Chelsea winger Arjen Robben insists he has a good relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
The Blues boss has demanded an improved level of performance from the 21-year-old after his return from injury in the win over Middlesbrough.
But Robben said: "I have got a very good relationship with the manager, that's the only thing I can say.
"I hear things sometimes but it's just nonsense. I am very happy at Chelsea and I will stay here for a long time."
Robben made a startling impact at Stamford Bridge last season, with nine goals, and was the catalyst behind some of Chelsea's more potent attacking displays.
But this season the Holland international has been a peripheral figure as he has battled against niggling injuries.
His appearance against Boro came after almost five weeks out with a hamstring injury, which stems from a back complaint.
"He needs to play and score goals, to get back to great performances and show what he can do," said Mourinho.
"We don't need to rest him, he needs to play. We're in early December and he's given us very little this season."
However, Robben denied that he felt under pressure to play.
"There is never any pressure over the injuries," he added.
And Mourinho said he is aware a full 90 minutes is still out of the question for the Dutchman.
"He doesn't yet have the legs for that," explained Mourinho.
"But a player like him has to give us a lot. We've been waiting for him, now he's back and we know what he can give to our team.
"He will give us points and victories, there is no doubt about that.
"I'm very pleased with him. He is also very pleased as he felt strong and played well. He showed the qualities that have made him a very important player for us.
"Every player who is out with injuries that are difficult to solve needs to come back and feel comfortable on the pitch."
