Micah Richards is desperate for Carlos Tevez to complete a return from the wilderness and make his way into Roberto Mancini's first-team once again.

The Argentine striker has not featured for Manchester City since September, having been disciplined by the club following his conduct during the defeat to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

Tevez has since attempted to engineer a move away from the Etihad Stadium, but City were unable to strike an agreement to allow him to leave Manchester during the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old is now back training with the club following a lengthy absence, and scored on his return to reserve team action last week.

Tevez is available for selection once again, and his contribution could prove to be vital as City look to pip rivals Manchester United to the Premier League title.

And Richards knows that Tevez's inclusion will only aid City in their bid to end the season victorious.

"I have always been a big fan of Tevez, I love him," Richards said, according to

"There were games last season where he carried us on his own and in these sort of games he would get a 1-0 win for us.

"It's up to the manager ultimately, but I would love to see him back."
