Mancini ready to welcome back Tevez

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has said he had "no problem" with Carlos Tevez and the striker could be considered for selection in "two or three weeks".

Tevez said in a statement released by City on Tuesday night that he was "sincerely and unreservedly" sorry for his actions in taking an unauthorised three-month leave of absence from the club. The Argentinian also withdrew his appeal against a fine of six weeks' wages.

After a 4-0 defeat of Porto put City into the last 16 of the Europa League, Mancini said Tevez would be available once he deems him match fit. The Italian told ESPN: "One week after Munich I called him to my house and said, 'Carlos, apologise to everyone and it's finished'. I have no problem. I think he needs two to three weeks to train, then some games."
