PFA chief Taylor delighted with Tevez and Man City reconciliation

Professional Footballers' Association chief Gordon Taylor has admitted his relief to hearing that Carlos Tevez and Manchester City are set to reconcile their differences.

The Argentine striker is back in Manchester after a three-month absence after he busted up with manager Roberto Mancini but is set to hold talks with the Italian tomorrow and Taylor says it is a great thing that the pair are looking to patch up their relationship.

"I hate seeing such top quality players in trouble with their clubs and in trouble with the game," he told Sky Sports News.

"This has gone on for too long and it's a real positive step for football, for Carlos Tevez and Manchester City. I'm very glad, having dealt with him and represented him.

"Sorry has been said; sometimes it's the hardest word. Sometimes if you can grasp that nettle early on it makes like so much better for all parties, that's what we're about in football: respect."
