PFA chief Gordon Taylor is happy Carlos Tevez has apologised for his behaviour towards Manchester City.

Tevez could yet have a part to play as City chase the Premier League title over the closing months of the season, and Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Taylor is thankful a reconciliation appears possible.

"I'm very glad, having dealt with him and represented him, Taylor said.

"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."

Taylor said: "I hate seeing such top quality players in trouble with their clubs and in trouble with the game.

"This has gone on for too long and it's a real positive step for football, for Carlos Tevez and Manchester City."
