Carlos Tevez has told Manchester City team-mate Mario Balotelli not to make the same mistakes he did.
Balotelli, 22, was pictured last week in an apparent physical confrontation with manager Roberto Mancini. Tevez is no stranger to controversy himself, having been out of the City side for a long spell last season after refusing to warm up during a Champions League match against Bayern Munich.
Tevez said: "I'm always keen to help him and keep him going through these kind of moments, so he doesn't make the same mistakes that I did in the past."
