Carlos Tevez hopes of building bridges with Manchester City received a little setback yesterday as an interview with Argentine TV spelt out the reason for his fall-out with Roberto Mancini. The Argentine has gone AWOL since the infamous incident in Munich, which has cost him apparently £9m in fines and breaches of his contracts, and he finally gave his version of events of the night in question. Tevez felt he was treated like a dog by Mancini and subsequently refused to warm up.
Elsewhere in the news Chelsea players have reportedly clashed with Andre Villas-Boas over his tactics during training; Ryan Giggs aiming for silverware as closes in on 1,000 games, while Standard Chartered expresses their concerns over the Luis Suarez affair.
