Tevez: I must leave

2010-12-20 10:34

Cape Town - Carlos Tevez has promised a stunning show for Manchester City on Monday night - but he is just as eager to quit the club, reports The Sun.

Tevez is expected to have the captain's armband taken off him against Everton following his written transfer request.

But the unhappy Argentinian striker has vowed to keep giving 100 percent, even though City fans are likely to get on his back.

A source close to Tevez said: "Carlos isn't the sort of player who will go missing in a game because he thinks it will persuade the club to let him go.

"He wouldn't try a trick like that. He will be giving it everything as usual. Don't be surprised if he gets a hat-trick.

"No one can question Carlos' performances for City. They have always been of a high standard.

"But nothing has changed regarding his transfer request. He wants to leave."

Yet he may face a chorus of boos from the Eastlands faithful.

Dave Wallace, editor of King of the Kippax fanzine, warned: "There is a bit of resentment from the fans. If he's adamant he's going to go there's no point in keeping an unhappy player."

The captaincy is expected to revert back to current vice-captain Kolo Toure, who held the position last season.

City chairperson Khaldoon Al Mubarak will be at tonight's game.

He and owner Sheikh Mansour are determined not to sell Tevez in the January transfer window.

One possible course of action is to persuade Tevez to stay until May with the promise his situation will be looked at again if he is still unhappy.

    Let this guy play reserve football for the duration of his contract....that will teach him and his agent a lesson.

    Incredible! F@#$ing little cry baby.....Thank God we let go from United! He is a dressing room problem!!

      The best revenge would be to overprice him and if he becomes extreme disillusioned then let him on the bench till he see's off his contract. I hate to say this but the club themselves are to blame cos they would do everything in their power to lure a player to their nest by paying them huge wage bills only to get this kind of gratitude in return. Man City are yet to feel the pinch from the way i see it, players like Toule bros, Adebayor, Adam Johnson, Milner, Barry and the elusive Balotelli and many others, are better off playing in the Champs League than the Europa cup, and if they fail to qualify again this season i don't think Mancini will persuade them from leaving.

    And everybody was surprised when Man Utd let him go so easily. Just goes to show how clever Alex Ferguson is - let somebody else deal with this problem. MAN UTD FOR EVER!!!

    Now everyone knows why Ferguson refused to buy him, Gunner once you have been beaten its best to keep silent. what you mean by manu supporter i dont know. Win anything lately or is it to far back to remember.

    Carlos Tevez you biscuit, watch him start a mass player exodus out of Eastlands when they pull a Mamelodi Sundowns on themselves ( spend millions and win nothing). City have never and will never be good enough for a league title and money doesn't buy happiness or contentment. They won't even qualify for Europe next year
