Tevez nearing City return after goal

Published Add your comment

Carlos Tevez continued his Manchester City reintegration with a goal in a reserves game last night.


The Argentinean forward has recently returned to the Etihad Stadium after a self-imposed exile of nearly four months.


It is quite a turnaround for Tevez, who fell out with the Citizens hierarchy after refusing manager Roberto Mancini’s request to warm up in a Champions League tie with Bayern Munich.


The Guardian reported that some 1047 people turned up for the Manchester Senior Cup tie between City and Bolton Wanderers reserves in Hyde.


The fans in attendance gave the backing to the much-maligned striker by cheering when his name was read out from the team sheet.


An even bigger cheer reportedly went up after Tevez scored the equalising goal in the 51st minute of the contest.


The 28-year-old was taken off on the 70th minute to applause from the crowd, which he returned in kind.


The livewire striker must be close to a return to Mancini’s first team, as the Italian claimed it would be two weeks before the Argentina international could play again – two weeks ago.
