Tevez: No rift with Mancini

Published Add your comment

Carlos Tevez insists he is happy at Manchester City and united in a common cause with manager Roberto Mancini.

The Blues skipper got himself embroiled in an argument with his boss towards the end of Saturday's victory over Bolton when Mancini decided to replace the South American with James Milner.

But in an interview for the official City media outlets, Tevez said: "It is just like any club. There are both good and bad vibes alike. The most important thing is that, as players, we are all pulling in the same direction and trying to do our best for the club. I'm happy here. I really am."

He added: "Anything that goes on between us (Tevez and Mancini) off the pitch or in the dressing room stays there and he and I keep on fighting for the club."

The insight offered to the City training ground by a public footpath that runs right past the club's base hardly helps.

At the 'other' Carrington nearby, where United train, no such view exists, so it is no coincidence that similar pictures of players rowing do not end up blasted all over the media.

It also means there is no way of testing Mancini's theory that such incidents occur at every club, every day.

However, Tevez, who has experienced life at both Manchester clubs, does not appear to think it is anything out of the ordinary.

"In any dressing room, you are going to have the odd problem, just like within any household," he said.

"It's just the same. We are part of a family. Sometimes you get problems and sometimes you don't."
