Juventus striker Tevez: Mancini almost drove me into retirement at Man City

Juventus star Carlos Tevez admits his blow up with Roberto Mancini almost drove him into retirement.

While with Manchester City, Tevez infamously refused to warm-up during a Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, which infuriated Mancini at the time.

Asked if he was happy in England, Tevez told El Pais: At City I did, but I made a mistake and paid for it [he refused to come on in a match against Bayern Munich and Roberto Mancini froze him out].

"I considered quitting football.

"He told me: 'You won't play for City again', and that's where it ended."
