Tevez return is possible -Mancini


Pin It

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has named Carlos Tevez in his 25-man squad for the remainder of the season – and admitted he could pick him again.

Mancini said a fully-fit Tevez could wear the sky blue shirt again, despite previously asserting that the Argentina international was “finished” at City.

Tevez remains at City after interest from AC Milan, Inter Milan and Paris St Germain failed to turn into a transfer.

“If he comes back – and he is fit – it is possible,” conceded Mancini.

Tevez, 27, remains in Argentina and, as yet, there has been no indication when the striker may return.

“Carlos is not an option at the moment but it is possible in the future if he comes back,” added Mancini.

“I hope for him he has been training in the last three months to help his condition.

“There is only one thing on my mind, the Barclays Premier League.”

Mancini has confirmed Owen Hargreaves remains available but has struggled to gain any consistent form during his time at City, triggering the deadline-day loan deal that saw David Pizarro move from Roma.

“Owen always has these little problems,” said Mancini.

“When he came to us in the summer we took a gamble because he had not played for two years.

“We thought we could try and get him fit in two or three months and then he would be able to play.

“But, like any player who hasn’t played for two years, when they start to train, every day there is a problem, with his knee or his hamstring.

“I hope for him he eventually is able to play all the time. He deserves to.”
