Fans must back Tevez - Balotelli

Published Add your comment

Mario Balotelli has told Manchester City's fans not to barrack Carlos Tevez when he returns from his self-imposed exile.

Tevez has not played for the City first team for five months but, after patching up his public dispute with boss Roberto Mancini and the club, could yet play a part in their quest for the Barclays Premier League title. The striker made his first public appearance back in a reserve team game against Bolton in midweek, marking the occasion with a goal.

Strike partner Balotelli believes Tevez's return is a boost to the club's title ambitions, but warned fans against booing him. He said: "I think the supporters have to be like they were before. They should not care because Carlos is here and, if they make pressure on Carlos, then they make pressure on all the team. So they shouldn't do nothing."
