Carlos Tevez: 'It is almost like there are two Tevezes'

Tevez is striving to re-established himself with the City faithful after he went AWOL for several months last season and admits he is much happier now with his loved ones by his side in England.

"I knew it wasn't going to be easy to come back," Tevez told the Sunday Times. "I'd left City and you could almost say I'd left through the back door.

"But it is almost like there are two Tevezes. There's the Tevez before, who had a problem, and there's the Tevez now, who no longer has problems.

"It totally changes everything, your disposition, your humour, just having the family close. "

"Before, if I wasn't selected I'd be in a terrible mood. Now I'm still gutted but I go home, see my daughters, it takes my mind off it and I feel better.

"I knew it would be difficult for the fans to accept me again.

"But I hope, little by little, match by match...you give everything for the shirt and win them over through hunger for glory.

"I was once a real idol for these fans, they were so supportive of me. I hope I'm able to win them back."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
