Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is happy to see Carlos Tevez apologise for his behaviour.

After a three-hour meeting with his representatives and City's football administrator Brian Marwood on Tuesday night, Tevez finally agreed to release a statement at 9.30pm, says the Daily Mail.

Mancini was not in Tuesday's meeting but is understood to be happy with the latest developments - signed off by the club's owners in Abu Dhabi - and will now be left to decide if and when Tevez is re-integrated into his first team squad.
