City star wants to stay – Mancini

Published Add your comment

Carlos Tevez is reconsidering his decision to leave Manchester City in the summer to be closer to his family, after the side qualified for Champions League football, Roberto Mancini said last night.

"Carlos has told me he wants to stay," Mancini told reporters at his post-match press conference.

“I have spoken with him many times in the last 20 days and my opinion is he will stay.

“He has a five-year contract and has told us he wants to stay. He said that before. He never had any problem.”


Tevez is currently the joint top scorer in the Barclays Premier League with Dimitar Berbatov, with the Manchester City star amassing 20 goals with one more match to play.

Pundits have said that Tevez has been the star for Manchester City this season, taking the side to it’s first trophy in 35 years and qualifying for Champions League football.

And Mancini has nothing but praise for the striker who, at times, has seemed a little discontent at Manchester City.

''Carlos has scored 20 goals this season. Every time we say Carlos is an important player. Carlos is Carlos. He is a fantastic striker and a fantastic player for us,” Mancini said.

''In December he had a problem. But everyone can change his opinion. I don't know what his representatives think.

“Carlos is an important player here. The feeling for him is good.

“Nowhere else can he find behaviour that all people have for him.''
