5th July 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Carlos Tevez has stated that he does not want to continue playing football games for Manchester City.

Tevez was integral in the team's rise to third place in the Premier League last season, but has expressed that he cannot live in Manchester without his children.

In a statement, he explained: "I need to be closer to them and to spend more time with them.

"Living without my children in Manchester has been incredibly challenging for me. Everything I do, I do for my daughters."

Tevez added that it is with "great regret" that he informed Manchester City of his desire to depart.

As well as this, he spoke of his hopes that the club's fans will understand that he gave them "100 per cent" on the pitch.

The Argentinean striker's announcement comes shortly after Manchester City's football manager Roberto Mancini stated that Tevez will not leave Eastlands this summer.
