Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says he has always had a good relationship with Carlos Tevez as he ruled out any further transfer activity before the deadline, meaning the Argentine is likely to spend the rest of the summer at the Etihad Stadium.

With Tevez looking likely to remain at City, Mancini felt the need to address comments made by the player’s advisor Kia Joorabchian on Friday.

Joorabchian claimed Tevez’s relationship with his manager had never been good and there had been “feuds” with Mancini throughout their time together.

This has come as a surprise to Mancini, who has always got the impression he had a good working relationship with a player he made his skipper at the start of last season.

“Carlos doesn’t have any problem with me,” said Mancini.

It has been claimed Tevez wants to join AC Milan, which is the reason why approaches from Inter Milan and Paris St Germain were unsuccessful.

All three clubs have now said they are out of the running during this transfer window, although it would not entirely be a surprise if there was a last-ditch attempt to sign Tevez from someone.

Presently though, the 27-year-old remains in Argentina, as he has been for more than two months.

There have been suggestions he will return if his future is not sorted this week, leaving Mancini with a tricky problem trying to reintegrate a player in his squad who has taken such an extreme stance.

“Everyone should always answer for his behaviour,” said Mancini.

“If a player is at one club and wants to go to another, it is an option for the player. Maybe for the club it is a big problem.”
