Tevez denies City comments

Carlos Tevez has denied make comments blaming Manchester City for his situation not being solved.

The Argentina international is currently back in his homeland, after a number of controversies led him to go AWOL.

AC Milan, Inter and Paris Saint-Germain all made bids for the sprightly attacker in the winter window, but none met the Etihad Stadium club’s valuation of the player, and were subsequently rejected.

Tevez was reportedly quoted as making comments saying he was annoyed by City’s stubborn approach.

“The situation is very strange for me,” the temperamental forward apparently told Kicker, republished in English by Sky Sports.

“I wanted to go and had offers from other leagues, from Spain and Italy. But it did not work out in the end because City did not accept any of the offers.

“There were offers from Milan, Inter and PSG. But something always wasn’t right.

“If all regularities are right and the clubs agree a transfer with City, I can see myself going there, even on loan.

“But after all that has happened with Milan or Inter, I don’t know if City wants me to leave on loan.

“If the rules allow it and City agree then that could be a possibility, if only as a loan, but I don’t know how Milan or Inter might feel about that.

“In any case, City want a definite transfer. That’s what complicates everything because they have made it clear they want a transfer fee for me,” the South American concluded.

However, Tevez’s representatives have come to the player’s defence, stating that the interview with the German journalist never happened.

“Regarding an interview published in Kicker magazine today, Carlos Tevez categorically denies both speaking to any journalist about his situation at Manchester City and the quotes attributed to him in the interview,” a statment, published in Mirror Football, reads.
