Aguero saddened by Tevez saga

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has admitted that the rift between the club and Carlos Tevez is not ideal, and that he hopes his countryman can yet be included in Roberto Mancini’s plans.

The controversial South American striker refused to warm up against Bayern Munich in a 2-0 Champions League defeat on September 27th, and has since been suspended for two weeks and fined four-weeks wages.

With no end to Tevez’s exile in sight, Aguero has stated that the situation is saddening and that he hopes a solution can be found in the near future.

“Unfortunately, the club and Carlitos haven’t reached an agreement and it pains me, as an Argentine and a team-mate, it makes me sad,” Aguero told ESPNDeportes.com.

“I can’t get involved in defending Carlitos or the club because I don’t know what happened. Only they know. It’s a shame for everyone.

“Hopefully, in these days or the next month it can be solved and he will be with us,” he concluded.

A January transfer away from the Etihad Stadium looks likely for Tevez, whilst Aguero has had an excellent start to his time in England and harbours much of the responsibility for filling his countryman’s boots.
