Man City ace Tevez reveals poor form down to playing injured

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has revealed his early season struggles were down to him playing injured.

Tevez has scored 17 times for the club he joined for £25m in the summer and believes supporters are now seeing the best of him after he was restricted by a knee problem earlier in the season.

"Mark Hughes asked me to play as other players were injured so I was having injections to get me through. It was causing me great pain and making it hard. It certainly had an impact.

"When I started to read that I wasn't doing well that was difficult for me as people didn't know the full story. Only now are they seeing the real Carlos Tevez."
