Mancini still uncertain about Tevezís future at City
Carlos Tevez’s future at Manchester City continues to remain in a mystery. In a recent interview the boss of Eastlands Roberto Mancini remained coy over Tevez’s speculated departure. The Italian manager admitted that his controversial striker had been in excellent form since his reintroduction in the Manchester City team but that alone could not confirm his stay at the club.
The Argentina international went away without leave for four months after a couple of locker rooms bust ups and a quandaries with Mancini. Rumors about the out of favor striker returning to Manchester City started around New Year’s Eve.
Eventually, Tevez did comeback to City and February he issued a formal apology for his behavior. Mancini forgave Tevez for what happened in the past referring it as water under the bridge.
Since then Tevez has made six appearances for City, including two starts. The 28-year-old striker has also scored four goals this season. His hat-trick this weekend helped City hammer Norwich City to a 6-1 defeat.
Tevez has already thanked Mancini for offering him an olive branch. The Argentine promised to redeem himself in front of the club and his fans and showed intentions of staying at the club. Mancini has shown liking for the former West Ham United striker but has admitted that Tevez’s stay at City is still inconclusive.
“It depends. Now I think it is important that we think about the next four games,” Mancini said. “After that, at the end of the season, we will see what can happen with all the players.”
The former Inter Milan manager ensured that he had no problems with Tevez, who created a lot of drama when City travelled to play against Bayern Munich for their Champions League tie. Reportedly, Tevez refused to play in the game.
“There is no problem,” Mancini declared. “It is in the past.”
According to rumors, Mancini might be willing to sell Tevez and Mario Balotelli this summer. The notorious strikers will undoubtedly bring in tons of cash which Mancini plans to spend on an attacking midfielder and a forward.
