Tevez Goes Public On City Exit Wish

Tevez Goes Public On City Exit Wish

Carlos Tevez and his advisers have wasted no time in responding to Manchester City's assertive statement over the wantaway strikers rejected transfer request...

Tevez Statement:

'I can confirm I have handed a transfer request to the chairman of Manchester City Football Club...Now I need to clear my head and think because this is an important part of my career.

'My feelings have not changed and it is regrettable that we have reached this situation...But it is something I have felt for some time and have spent many hours thinking this through.

'I hugely resent the management`s suggestions that I have been unduly influenced by others...I wanted to leave in the summer, but was convinced to return to the club. Sadly, my feelings have not changed.

'I am disappointed that the management should now see fit to try to portray the situation in another light...My relationship with certain executives and individuals at the club has broken down and is now beyond repair.

'I do not wish to expand on this at this stage. They know, because I have told them.

'I wish to clarify that I have no personal issue with the manager Roberto Mancini.

'The owner has been very generous with what he has offered to me. I would like to thank Sheik Mansour for his understanding and support.'

I seriously doubt he will ever wear the shirt again after that to the delight of our title rivals. - At least the hacks and expert pundits have been exposed over the alleged war between Tevez and Mancini.

Kompany must be made captain tomorrow and we must get our targets set for the january transfer window..outs tevez,adebayor and santa cruz..ins torres,benzema and dzeko would do for me..

I don't like the "at this stage" comment. He's threatening more. That'll be Marwood and Cook in the firing line IMHO. But that aside, I'm interpreting this as a massive middle finger to the team mates he's supposed to be captaining and above all else to the fans he knows he'll be hurting. When Hughes went, we saw division and I'm dreading similar here, but from what I hear he has been having next to feck all to do with the rest of the lads, even stuffing the team christmas party. We MUST get rid asap. We are in our best league position and title shout since 1977.

His English has improved! I hope Kia Joorabchian dies a most painful death for instigating this. Wants his Christmas bonus (50% of the transfer fee), Tevez has no brain and is easily manipulated.

Mancio is waiting in Italy for The Blues plane in a day or so. That Europa League press conference with one of our players by his side is going to be interesting. I hope he selects Vinnie as skipper and takes the stage with him.

When Robinho demanded to leave i laughed my ass off, when Adebayor demanded to be leave i had a chuckle and now with Tevez demanding to leave at best i had a smirk...its getting boring now guys, how long do you think it will be before Balotelli demands to leave? to bad you guys cant buy loyalty eh.

Too bad for Liverpool they couldn't buy Mascherano's or Alonso's either Klutch. Difference is we have the means to replace Tevez.

Loyalty is a rarity at this level and well we all know it. Anyone who think it isn't is clearly delusional.

The only way Tevez gets out of this situation with his personal reputation intact is if he buys himself out of his deal and goes to play for Boca or his local pub team in Buenos Aires. A move anywhere else, will just prove he's used his family as an excuse to engineer his way out a commitment. Man up Carlitos - you're an adult.

That "certain executives" line. He can't speak the same language at all so was something being lost in translation? - Grassy Knollington, Conspiracy Theorist
