Roberto Mancini has told Carlos Tevez that if he really wants to leave Manchester City this summer, he will not stand in the Argentinian's way.
Recent reports have suggested that if City fail to qualify for next season's Champions League, an unsettled Tevez will push for a move away from Eastlands.
Tevez is also said to be critical of Mancini's training regime, but the Italian said:"If a top player is not happy to stay here then it's better to go to another team.
"I think this is not just the case for Tevez. This is the same for Manu (Emmanuel Adebayor), for me, for everyone. It's important that when a manager or player works in a team, he must be happy to work in this team. It's not good for the club, for the squad, for the player if he is not.
"We have trained twice on the same day only four times in five months. Two of those times Carlos was in Argentina, one time he didn't train. I don't know why he's unhappy.
"When we don't have a midweek game I always train two times on Tuesday because it's the only way I know. By working we can improve, but we won't improve if we work two days and have one day off."
