Tough decision ahead for Tevez

BY foxsports • May 15, 2011

Tevez's future has been in doubt ever since he handed in a transfer request last December, a request which he later withdrew. And the Argentinian admits family issues will be vital when it comes to figuring out where his future lies. "It's difficult to be far from my daughters," Tevez was quoted as saying by El Mundo after helping City beat Stoke 1-0 in the FA Cup final. "I will think hard about what is best for me, first I want to clear my head, "I'm very well, very calm, but l also want to make it clear that I have no problem with the board, nor with Roberto (Mancini). "As there has been a lot of talk that I have a problem with Roberto, I want to clear that up. "If I stay at City I have to start thinking about what I can bear and it's very difficult, that's the truth." Manchester City director of football Brian Marwood wants Tevez to reflect on what he would giving up if he decides to leave. Marwood believes the club is going to be "an interesting place" in the coming years, and told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme: "We are working hard to keep Carlos Tevez, as we are with everybody. "I just hope Carlos reflects on the season, reflects on yesterday, reflects on the fact we are going to be playing Champions League football and thinks: 'this is something I want to be part of'. "That is up to Carlos to think through in the summer. "You would like to think Manchester City is going to be an interesting place over the next few years." Marwood added: "Carlos asked for a transfer in January and the club refused that. He is a massive player for us. "He is our captain, he is our top goalscorer. Everyone can see that when he steps over that white line he gives everything. "He came into the final yesterday having just recovered from a very nasty hamstring injury but once again showed great leadership qualities."
