Tevez: No problem with Mancini

Carlos Tevez insists he and Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini have a 'great relationship' both on and off the pitch.

Strong speculation has linked the Argentina striker with a move to Italy this summer amid rumours his rapport with the manager has broken down.

But after helping City lift the FA Cup, Tevez says he is not set on a move away and maintains there are no issues between him and Mancini.

"We have a great relationship. We are both winners and want to achieve more things," he said.


"We have a good relationship off the pitch and in the professional sense.

"Sometimes there were problems between us but I think that happens everywhere."

Tevez says he would be happy to stay at Eastlands if he can find a solution to his family issues.

He said: "My family are my priority, I don't have a problem with anyone at the club. Everyone treats me right.

"There are still two games to play and we are only focused on that. Then I will talk with my family and everyone else. I have not made a decision on anything yet.

"The club wants to me stay and I also want to stay if everything is okay for my family.

"I don't know if I'm going to leave or not or going to Spain or Italy. People say I am going but I am still here."

City are tipped to challenge for the Premier League title next season after lifting the FA Cup on Saturday, and Tevez admits the prospect of overhauling local rivals Manchester United is an incentive to remain at the club.

He added: "Yes, that is a great motivation to stay.

"It would make me very happy to win the title here. It is what we all want and need."
