Tevez upset by Mancini treatment

Published Add your comment

Carlos Tevez returns to England on Tuesday but has accused Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini of treating him "like a dog" in the incident which sparked the rift between club and player.

The striker claimed Mancini was in a foul mood and swore at him as he sat on the bench during the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich at the end of September.

Talking about the circumstances surrounding his refusal to warm up on September 27, the Argentina international said in a Fox Sports interview broadcast in translation on Sky Sports News: "I was kind of in a bad mood and when he brings on (Nigel) de Jong and takes off (Edin) Dzeko and we're losing 2-0 I thought it was a defensive substitution so I decided to sit back on the bench."
