Now, the question is - would you welcome Carlos Tevez back into the Manchester City side if you were Roberto Mancini?
Looking at our Twitter, many of you would not. Adam Kevin Barrett (@bazige) said "no not ahead of any player including kids who actually take pride in playing for city. Not a chance!" whilst many replied with just 'no'. Loucas Georgiou (@LoucasCTID) commented "NO. Lets remember the 2 great seasons he had with us and wish him well. But too much water under" about the situation.
Some defended the Argentine, such as Ray Lowrey (@maineroadray) "big time, we have proven over the last couple of months that you need 4 top class strikers
Carlos Tevez has not featured in the squad since the Blues 2-0 loss at Allianz Arena, where Mancini told the press that Carlos had refused to come off the bench as a sub. Since then, he has claimed that he was "treated like a dog".
Granted, Carlos is a brilliant talent and would be an influential substitute to have (hoping he will come on) but should he really be given another chance? He has handed in two transfer requests and it has taken this long for him to come out and actually apologise. Now, we just have to leave the rest with Roberto Mancini and see what he decides, the return of the Argentine hitman may be advantageous for our push towards the end of the season and our attempts of bringing the Premier League to the Etihad.
