Mancini tells Tevez ‘go f**k your mother’ in dressing row

Pair clash at half-time during Newcastle game


Roberto Mancini and Carlos Tevez had to be dragged apart by their Manchester City teammates at half-time during the match against Newcastle on Sunday, after getting into a stand-up row over the manager’s ‘negative’ tactics.

The row began when Tevez, who blamed the team’s unconvincing first-half performance on Mancini’s tactical setup, made an unsavoury comment towards the manager in Spanish. According to The Sun Mancini responded with “go f**k your mother” before Tevez ‘swung his arms’ at his gaffer and the pair had to be pulled apart.

Tevez is meant to be upset with the lack of service he receives from City’s formation, which uses three static centre-mids and often sees the striker having to drop deep to get a sniff of the ball.

It’s not the first time Roberto and Carlos have clashed – last season Tevez was cautioned after publicly voicing his displeasure at City’s intense training regime. The manager has also fallen out with Craig Bellamy and is rumoured to have a frosty relationship with Adam Johnson.

Is the unspoken truth around Eastlands – that Mancini is only a stop-gap manager – threatening to derail his team’s spirit?

    Perhaps Tevez should NOT have said, “¡¡Cagomos en la leche de tu puta madre, Mancini!!” But if he didn’t he should have.

    EVERY manager at City is a stop-gap manager. There will always be a younger, fitter model who seems more attractive.

    I knew that Mancini’s training methods were a bit different but I fail to see how incest will help your player score.
