Manchester City fullback Aleksandar Kolarov says the players are unaffected by the Carlos Tevez controversy.

Tevez trained alone at City's Carrington training ground on Wednesday after stating his desire to reclaim his place in Roberto Mancini's squad.

Kolarov insists the players are in the dark over the situation surrounding the striker, adding: "We don't talk about it in the locker room and nobody knows how it will develop.

"I don't have anything to comment about it, it is a thing between the two of them. As I said, no one is talking about it and, in the end, it's not for the players to comment on such situations."
