Man City boss Mancini: My masterstroke to make Tevez captain

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says it was a "masterstroke" naming Carlos Tevez his captain.

Skipper Tevez scored Manchester City's winner against Chelsea and then unveiled a T-shirt birthday greeting to his mum.

City boss Mancini said: "I hope it's a masterstroke - he's a fantastic striker and he's a fighter. Against tall players, against big players, he never gives up. He leads by example."
