Tevez is expected to start tomorrow night against Manchester United.
Mancini said: âI donât think Carlos will find his best form until next Âseason when he has had Âpre-season training.
âMaybe this is not the time to talk about the future, but Carlos has two years left on his contract. He is a City player. Carlos is not 100 per cent because it is impossible to be 100 per cent if you havenât played for six months.
âBut he is a Âclever player who uses his experience. He has scored important goals and has done even more than I Âexpected. I just hope he can continue to do this in our last three games because he is a top striker.
âIt was a strange Âsituation because he had six months out. I said to ÂCarlos lots of times ÂâCarlos, apologiseâ.â
