Roberto Mancini has urged Manchester City fans to lay off Carlos Tevez tonight as they chase top spot in the Premier League.
City can go top of the table at Christmas for the first time since 1929 if they beat Everton at Eastlands.
And Mancini has pleaded with their fans to back want-away striker Tevez – despite him demanding to leave.
Mancini will strip Tevez of the captaincy, handing the skipper’s armband to Vincent Kompany, while the City striker’s future remains unresolved following his bombshell demand.
Although Tevez insisted he wants to move when the transfer window re-opens next month, City remain adamant they will not consider selling the £50million-rated forward until the end of the season.
The Argentine star has yet to respond to Mancini’s insistence that he should remain at the club until then.
And although Tevez can expect a hostile reception from some sections of the Eastlands crowd, Mancini believes his leading scorer will give 100 per cent and has called on City’s fans to back him.
“It’s important that we are focused on Everton and the supporters are focused too,” said Mancini. “We should forget this [Tevez] because we must focus on the game.
“Everton beat us twice last year – it will be a difficult game and a tricky one.” (Daily Mirror)
Maybe it will be too cold to boo anyway? Are you going to the game tonight or indeed supporting City on the box, if so do you plan to harangue Carlos Tevez? Does he deserve a good boo? Or should he be left alone to do what he does best, scoring goals and then understandably getting angry when Roberto Mancini subs him for no apparent reason.
