Home » EPL, Latest » Roberto Mancini: Carlos Tevez goals is just fantastic

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini hailed Carlos Tevez after his brace helped City move to the top of the Premier League.

“I am very happy for him because he scored two fantastic goals and took his goals very, very well. The first goal he scored was fantastic,” Mancini said of Tevez, who stunned the club last month by demanding a transfer before withdrawing his request.

“I thought it was a difficult game. I thought we were so-so in the first 20 minutes and Wolves pressed us well and we had some problems, but we scored goals and had three of four other chances to score.

“However, I thought we lost our concentration towards the end because we thought it was finished, but it is never finished.”

Mancini handed new £27 million signing Edin Dzeko his debut, following his transfer from Wolfsburg, and although he clearly lacked match sharpness, Mancini was still pleased with the Bosnian’s first afternoon out in City colours.

“He played well,” he said. “It was his first game in 30 days and his first game with a new team, but he played well.

“He needs to improve and work hard but I think he showed he is a good player.

“We are happy after the result and I am happy for our supporters because they deserve this, but the season is very long and we must improve because we cannot do the same mistakes as today in the last 10 minutes.”
