Carlos Tevez has no intention of going on strike in order to facilitate his departure from Manchester City, Kia Joorabchian has insisted.
Joorabchian, Tevez’s advisor, has reiterated that the Argentine ace is desperate to leave Eastlands.
But he has rubbished some suggestions that Tevez may refuse to play for City after his transfer request was rejected.
“I want to be clear that Carlos has never said he is not going to play or train or be professional. So those rumours are rubbish,” Joorabchian stated in the Daily Telegraph.
“He will play if picked and 100 per cent do his best. He feels that is important every time he puts on the shirt. He always gives 100 per cent.
“It’s been said City will sue for a breach of his contract but on what grounds? All he’s done is simply request a transfer.
“No-one is saying if Carlos leaves he should go for free. Everyone knows City have to be compensated.
“Of course we understand the fans aren’t happy. Carlos is a big player, a very important one and they will be surprised by what’s happened.
“They probably weren’t aware of Carlos’ feelings for the last six months and will be confused.
“Anyone who has met Carlos and got to know him realises he is no-one’s puppet. Every big decision is made by him.
“He made his position clear when he wanted to leave United and he’s doing the same now. He is very strong-minded. (Sky Sports)
What will happen next? Carlos Tevez has made it clear he wants to leave, citing broken promises which all sounds eerily familiar to Wayne Rooney’s recent spat with Man United so is the Argentine just looking for a bigger pay packet? Well that seems unlikely given the fact that he is reportedly being paid more than any other Premier League player, so perhaps he really does want to leave simply because of a break down in communications with some at the club.
Man City will stand by their guns and a lot will depend on what happens over the next month or so. Perhaps things will descend to a point that leads the club to feel they have no choice other than to sell the 26 year old within the January transfer window.
Alternatively perhaps now that Tevez has aired his feelings maybe things will progress onwards and upwards from this point on. The fact that the Eastlands outfit are actually doing very well and pushing for a Champions League finish and perhaps even a run at the Premier League title, two goals that Carlos will have been hoping to achieve with the club.
