Tevez grateful to fans for forgiveness
Manchester City Argentine striker Carlos Tevez targets future Manchester City success, reports Manchester Evening News.
Tevez signed for City after playing for cross city rivals Manchester United in 2009, for an undisclosed fee paid to his previous owners ‘Media Sports’, and has certainly had a headline grabbing career in his time at the Sky Blues.
After refusing to play in a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich last season, Tevez took a self-decided sabbatical from the club, much to the anger of manager Roberto Mancini.
He did however return to the Etihad and played a pivotal role in City’s title winning campaign, with four league goals as well as providing an important assist for Samir Nasri on his return in a 2-1 home victory over Chelsea.
Since then, the striker has committed himself fully to the Manchester side, and went to great lengths to return to full fitness over the summer.
Now Tevez is raring to go and insists that he is set on winning more trophies with City and has been hugely grateful for the fans and clubs forgiveness.
He said: “I don’t know if I’m an idol for the City fans, but I am very grateful to them. They have always treated me well even after all of the things that were said away from the pitch.
“They have always welcomed me, and for that I am grateful. Whatever I do, they make me feel at home and I would like to thank the fans for that.”
