The Italianâ€™s future at the Etihad is in serious doubt after a training ground bust-up with boss Roberto Mancini.
Former Manchester United forward Tevez, 28, said: â€śI try to help Mario. I talk to him personally, on and off the pitch.
â€śIâ€™ve been in that moment like him.
â€śIâ€™m always keen to help him and keep him going through these kind of moments, so he doesnâ€™t make the same mistakes that I did in the past.â€ť
Tevez played down last week's training ground incident though and insisted he has seen similar things happen all over the world.
He added: â€śThere are these kind of things that have happened at all the clubs Iâ€™ve been, but here at City the spotlight is always on us, as it is always on Roberto and Mario.
â€śSo here it always comes out â€” but this kind of thing happens everywhere.
â€śMario has been doing OK. He has been working and trying to improve, and you can always improve as a player.
â€śThatâ€™s what he did coming back from illness and injury, and itâ€™s what he has been trying to do.â€ť
