Roberto Mancini refuses to rule out Carlos Tevez’s return to Manchester City. AP photoManchester City manager Roberto Mancini refused to rule out a possible return to action for Carlos Tevez, provided he proved his fitness.
Tevez has not played for City since a spat with Mancini during last September’s Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.
The Argentinean striker has been in limbo ever since, having returned to his homeland while attempts to broker a move in the January window fell flat.
Mancini however surprised many by including Tevez in his official updated 25-man squad for the remainder of the Premier League season, and said on Feb. 3 it was possible the forward could yet feature this term.
“Carlos is not an option at the moment but it is possible in the future if he comes back,” said Mancini. “I hope for him he has been training in the last three months to help his condition. If he comes back - and he is fit - it is possible.”
