Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini insists he has never had a problem with wantaway striker Carlos Tevez. The Argentine star has previously made it clear that he wants to leave Manchester and in the past has had a few run-ins with Mancini but the Italian tactician says there has never been an issue from his side.

"I have never had any problems with Tevez," he told Rete Sport.

"He is still 27 years old and he is not at the end of his career.

"He want to go away to be closer to his family, but having someone like Tevez in the team means 20 goals a season."
