I'm sorry, that really is just shit management. Also, after the Tevez incident can we really believe Mancini when he says someone is 'finished' at City?
Tevez's apology to City also included a jab at Mancini saying he treated him like a dog lol, but desperation seems to have factored into overlooking that when taking him back.
Balotelli in the meanwhile has had his form slump badly and was making reckless challenges all day during what should have been a pivotal match. Mancini can at least rely on Tevez to give it his all.
He either wants back in the Serie A and is deliberately showing. As form cus he's a bastard or he's flopping faster than Andy Carroll.
