Unhappy Man City players want Tevez SACKED as skipper

Some Manchester City players want Carlos Tevez SACKED as captain next season, it has been revealed.

The Independent says three senior players at Manchester City have told manager Roberto Mancini that they do not want Tevez to be captain of the side if he returns next season, delivering the first evidence that the interminable uncertainty over the Argentine's future is damaging his popularity.

Tevez's strongest public hint yet of his intention to return to Eastlands next season was accompanied at the weekend by a claim that he had been offered - and rejected - a staggering £250,000-a-week salary.

Tevez is already City's highest paid player and the dressing room's questioning of why he should lead the side despite his apparent indifference about his future at the club suggests that he now needs to make a decision.
