City and England's Micah Richards is the latest Blue to declare that the return from self imposed exile of Carlos Tevez could yet bolster City's continuing title charge...
Responses to Tevez's global apology for all his subterfuge and deviousness have been generally mixed across Planet Blue yet the majority have been laced with complete mistrust.
Not so a number of key squad players suggesting that The Citizens, who have maintained top of the league for four months with three strikers have received a timely shot in the arm by suddenly obtaining a fourth. Richards:
'It's a mixed feeling really for the fans, but for me as a player I'm glad to have him back because he's an outstanding player. He was our captain and leader, not only on the ball but off the ball as well, working hard, closing people down...He was a real nightmare to play against and to have that back in our team would be a boost for us.
'He's got something that maybe the other strikers don't have. Not in terms of ability but just knowing what the Premier League is like.'
David 'Merlin' Silva, following praises sung by the likes of Samir Nasri echoed Micah's belief:
'...It is very important to have those four great strikers with us. It makes it easier for the people playing behind them. We all know they are great players and it could be an important factor to help us win the title race.
'Carlos has shown before he has great character and determination, and for someone like him it would be easier to get into form than for others. Carlos is a great player, and if he is physically fit he would be a very good player to have.'
Tevez is back in full training with the City squad and is strongly rumoured to be in with a shout of making the City bench against Blackburn Rovers.
