Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez denies he is motivated by money.

Tevez's camp was responding to comments from City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.

"Carlos has said many times before that money has never been a motivation," said a spokesman for the player.

"We reached an agreement with Manchester City in terms of his wages and he returned to Argentina and nothing has changed on that front.

"Now all Carlos wants to do is get back to playing football again."
