Man City boss Mancini says his decision alone to bring back Tevez

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says it was his decision to welcome back Carlos Tevez.

Mancini is adamant the decision to re-admit Tevez into his squad for the title run-in was his, and not imposed by City's owners after a move to Paris Saint Germain collapsed.

He told France Football: "Yes, yes we say hello with Carlos. I always had a good rapport with him. I didn't have a problem to forgive him.

"The board have never imposed anything on me. To play Tevez again was a logical choice because he didn't leave in the January transfer window.

"He's a player of great quality, one of the best strikers in the world, and we thought he could help us. I have had a good attitude with him like with everyone else. It's not us who wanted him to go to Argentina in November.

"I was very sorry with that situation. I found it strange. I don't know why all this happened."
