FURIOUS Roberto Mancini will strip Carlos Tevez of the Manchester City captaincy and force him to train with the reserves.
The Eastlands boss does not want the transfer-seeking striker with City in Turin this week where they are playing Juventus in their last Europa League group clash.
Mancini will hold face-to-face talks with Tevez on Friday to assess whether he can even pull on a City strip again.
But the Italian manager is now set to hand the skipper’s armband on to midfield tough guy Nigel De Jong or back to Kolo Toure.
Mancini is determined the little Argentine star’s bid to quit City will NOT derail his attempts to win the title this season.
And he has already targeted a replacement in the form of Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko.

It looks very much like Man City are ready to challenge Carlos Tevez and are willing to punish the striker for his attempts to leave the club in such a defiant manner. Roberto Mancini is ready to take the Argentine’s captain’s armband and banish him to train with the reserves in the hope that such action will make the 26 year old see sense, in reality all this will do is further enrage a player who clearly wants to leave.
With that in mind Mancini is wisely planning a raid to sign Bosnian international Edin Dzeko who has become a goal machine in the Bundesliga over the past few seasons. The 24 year old has apparently fallen out with Steve McClaren in recent weeks and given Wolfsburg’s shocking start to the season which has left the 2008/9 champions in 14th spot perhaps the club is ready to cash in on their prized asset.
