No way back for Tevez, insists Mancini

MANCHESTER City boss Roberto Mancini today insisted Carlos Tevez has played his last game for the club.

Tevez was suspended for two weeks and fined after City found him guilty of five breaches of contract for refusing to warm up in a Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

He flew home to Argentina early last week without permission from City.

Asked today if Tevez could play for the club again, Mancini replied: “I don't think so. “I know he is in Argentina. I don't know what he is doing.”

City are at home to Newcastle tomorrow and Mancini added: “Why are we continuing to talk about Carlos? We have an important game.”
