Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was happy to turn to Carlos Tevez for their victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was happy to turn to Carlos Tevez for their victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Tevez was a second-half substitute for City, making his first appearance of the campaign after a close season in which he made clear his desire to leave the club to be nearer to his family in South America.

A proposed switch to Corinthians fell through and Mancini does not expect Tevez to leave before the end of August.

He said: "Carlos is here, I don't think the situation will change. Carlos is an important player, a top player for us and at the moment we haven't received any offers for him."
