Toure happy at Tevez return

Published Add your comment

Yaya Toure is happy to welcome Carlos Tevez back into the Manchester City fold.

City scored 93 times on their way to a first title in 44 years last term, and that was without Tevez for half a season after he went AWOL following his well-publicised spat with Mancini in Munich. He looked good at Villa Park on Sunday though as City claimed a 3-2 Community Shield victory over Chelsea.

For some, the stain on his character from last year's sorry events can never be removed, but thankfully for Tevez, his team-mates do not share that view and Toure said: "He is a fantastic guy and a fantastic professional. He made a mistake. But the most important thing when you make a mistake you have to apologise. He apologised to everyone."
