Lescott boosted by Tevez addition

After manager Roberto Mancini reportedly accepted the apology of the Argentine outcast, it seems Tevez’s teammates are also opening up to the return of the former fan favourite, with Joleon Lescott leading the brigade.

Some have commented that the return of Tevez may make for further unsettling at the club, however Lescott assures us that his comeback will only benefit the Citizens.

Roberto Mancini was recently accused of treating Tevez ‘like a dog’ by the player himself, however it seems that the situation can be rescued, with Mancini noting that after rigorous fitness tests, the forward, may return to action within three weeks.

Lescott remains confident Tevez can contribute to City’s title chase, stating: “If we can all get together and push in the same direction I am sure it’s a positive for the club. With us, Carlos has never been an issue, and we are confident that if he does get his chance, he will score a lot of goals.”

Tevez was infamously cut from the Manchester City squad early in the season after he refused to come off of the bench in a Champions League group game against Bayern Munich.

The England international added: “You need to appreciate what Carlos has done for the club over the last two years. Obviously Carlos hasn’t been here for the last few months but that’s an issue the club have dealt with. We feel that everyone involved has dealt with it correctly and the players have got on with the job in hand.”

Tevez came back from a four-month stay in Argentina earlier this month, even though his manager forbade him from doing so and could feature for the Citizens as early as March.
