Manchester City manager claims no Carlos Tevez problem
Despite playing just a handful of matches for Manchester City this season, Carlos Tevez has still dominated the back page headlines on a weekly basis, with the Argentine’s spat with Roberto Mancini having become one of the biggest talking point this season.

Tevez apparently refused to warm up as a substitute during Manchester City’s 2-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last autumn, although the January transfer window is set to close with the south American still on the books at Eastlands.
Roberto Mancini claimed after that infamous match that Tevez was finished at City, although the Italian today told journalists that there was no problem between the pair, despite the player having been nowhere near the first team since the incident.
“Carlos doesn’t have any problem with me,” said the City boss.
“Everyone should always answer for his behaviour,” said Mancini.
“If a player is at one club and wants to go to another, it is an option for the player. Maybe for the club it is a big problem.”
It appears that Liverpool offered to swap Andy Carroll with Tevez over the weekend although Manchester City are looking for a large transfer fee instead, while it is though that Carroll is not the type of forward required at Eastlands due to his similarities with Edin Dzeko.
