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."
