At the time, Mancini declared Tevez would never play for the club again.
He told the Daily Mail: "I was really upset after that game. Not because we had lost, but because it was Carlos in that situation. I always had a good relationship with Carlos and did everything for him, like other players, but Carlos in particular, so for this reason I was upset. But after two or three days, it was in the past. The problems came later, but it is important that we did well in the end and won for Manchester City."
