Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini won't make it easy for Carlos Tevez to return to the first team.

The Italian was stung by what the ex-Manchester United striker said about him during an interview back in Argentina.

A source close to Mancini told The Sun: "The manager is a very forgiving person and he was willing to open the door again for Carlos. But he was hurt by what was said in the interview - a lot of his staff were hurt by it."
