Manchester City played against Preston North End in one of those "behind closed doors" reserve games. Those players faces have "holy fuck that's Carlos Tevez" written all over them. Tevez played 45 minutes before he was replaced by somebody I've never heard of.
This game was re-arranged to help Tevez get back into the swing of things. It doesn't really matter, he's a freak of nature. He can be two stone overweight and still be faster, stronger and more skillful then anyone else on the pitch. It's strange how on the pitch, Tevez is the most committed, most physical player you could ever hope to have on your team. He will run and run until he throws up a lung. Take him off the pitch and he can't be arsed to even wipe his backside without getting his agent to demand a wage rise.
Roberto Mancini didn't bother going to the game, he still hates him. So he should, Tevez has been holidaying in Argentina on full pay for about three months. But Mancini isn't stupid, he knows that Tevez coming back could potentially secure the title. There is a rumour that if Manchester City win the league, Tevez's (Tevez'?) wage doubles. If true, Roberto Mancini will probably spontaneously combust in rage.
