Carlos Tevez Apologises
February 21, 2012 by staff
Carlos Tevez Apologises, Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has apologised for his recent conduct following his touchline row with manager Roberto Mancini in September.
The 28-year-old returned to the club last week , following a self-imposed, three-month exile in Argentina.
“I wish to apologise sincerely and unreservedly to everybody I have let down and to whom my actions have caused offence,” Tevez said in a statement.
He has also withdrawn his appeal against the club’s misconduct charge.
“My wish is to concentrate on playing football for Manchester City Football Club,” he added.
Carlos Tevez’s apology marks a significant rapprochement in this often bitter dispute.
It should be viewed as a pragmatic measure by both club and player, following lengthy negotiations this month between Kia Joorabchian, Tevez’s representative, and John McBeath, Manchester City’s acting chief executive.
Having failed to secure a move to, notably, AC Milan in the January transfer window, Tevez faced a choice of continuing to play golf in Argentina or returning to Manchester to fight for his place in the team.
It may still be the case that Tevez moves on in the summer, but for now peace appears to have broken out at the Etihad Stadium.
The Argentina international has been missing from the City squad since November and has not featured for the club after boss Roberto Mancini alleged the striker refused to come on as a substitute during City’s 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich in a Champions League tie in September, although Tevez claimed there had been a misunderstanding.
