Mancini insists Tevez has City future

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is adamant striker Carlos Tevez still has a future at the club and is backing the Argentine to hit the goal trail like his fellow strikers.

Tevez revealed during the summer transfer window that he wanted to leave the club, but with the transfer window having closed, the 27-year-old appears set to spend at least another year at the Etihad Stadium.

New signing Sergio Aguero has already netted six times for City, while January transfer window signing Eden Dzeko has rediscovered his mojo with seven goals in five games this season.

"In this moment there are players that are playing better than him and Carlos is here training," Mancini said. "When Carlos is good, probably he’ll have a chance to play.


"I don’t know if he’s happy but every player when they can’t play is not happy. It’s normal. But we have other players that deserve a position."

Since his return, after featuring in the Copa America during the summer, Tevez has failed to net for City and has been replaced as captain by Vincent Kompany, but Mancini is delighted to have the forward on board.

“For me it’s good because we know that Carlos can score 20 goals in one season and if we score a lot of goals with all our strikers it will be good,” he added.

“The Champions League is the top competition. Maybe if we have players that have played in this competition in the past [it will help] but when we play the first time with Manchester City you want to try to win and sometimes you lose."
