Mario Balotelli has urged Manchester City fans to get behind Carlos Tevez.

Balotelli is looking forward to the return of his team-mate and wants fans to show the same enthusiasm for his comeback.

He said: "I think supporters have to be like they were before. If they make pressure on Carlos, they make pressure to all the team, so they should do nothing.

"I think everyone can make a mistake. Carlos is part of the team. He's just a part of the team, so everybody loves him."
