Tevez hands in transfer request

"I can confirm I have handed a transfer request to the chairman of Manchester City Football Club," said the 26-year-old. "Now I need to clear my head and think because this is an important part of my career. My feelings have not changed and it is regrettable that we have reached this situation. But it is something I have felt for some time and have spent many hours thinking this through."
So Tevez hands in a transfer request, which is rejected. But he states that he needs time to think (now?) and it doesn't seem as if he will be available next week when City host Everton. I know we are all feeling a bit burned after Balotelli's -2 yesterday. But what if his early tap-in had rolled into the net instead of across the face? How different would it all have been? It will be very hard - for me at least - to stay away from him at just over 6.

Though Defoe at 10, at Blackpool, may be too tempting as well alongside Torres and Rooney.

And of course, this isn't the first time Tevez have been involved in some unseemly dealings.


  1. And people thought Fergie (and me by arguing he wasn't) crazy/stupid for letting Tevez go. If Tevez had half the mental strength and loyalty Roy Keane had, Fergie wouldn't have let him go without a fight. This is the side that fans never saw till now.

    First Adebayor and now Tevez, I can't help but chuckle at the faltering of another oil-money club.

  2. beware of Spurs @ Blackpool, could be some weather at the weekend

  3. I just dont understand..he had a money on the pocket.He was a captain for 'BIG' man city.He was the one of best premier league striker this term..
    I think he just not enjoy a treatment from Mancini in term of training, being substitute and look play harder than any of his team..week in week out made him sick..

    As for Balotelli I distrusted my instincts and went with him over Heskey and got duly burnt. I learned the lesson and BD'd Heskey who I think is a better enabler over the long-term: Houllier got the best out him at Liverpool and I think he'll do it again.
