Have to say that I am really surprised to hear that Carlos Tevez has issued a full apology to Roberto Mancini and the City players, clearing the way for him to re-join the first team squad as soon as he is fit.
A Manchester City statement said:
“Carlos Tevez has today apologised to all concerned for his recent conduct. Carlos returned to the football club last Tuesday, following a three month absence from duties, without permission. “Carlos said, ‘I wish to apologise sincerely and unreservedly to everybody I have let down and to whom my actions over the last few months have caused offence. My wish is to concentrate on playing football for Manchester City Football Club.’
“Carlos has also withdrawn his appeal against the club’s finding of gross misconduct which was due to be heard by a Premier League panel in the coming days.
“He has since begun a training program designed to return him to optimum fitness.”
Tevez is hoping to return to the City line-up against Bolton a week on Saturday after starting an intensive fitness regime.
Allowing Tevez back into club, shows the pressure that Mancini is under to win the title this year. City have been struggling to score goals since the start of the year, and Mancini is obviously very worried that Man United will catch and pass them for the title.
