Post Match Interviews With Roberto Mancini and Carlos Tevez (Video)

The news that Carlos Tevez refused to play for Manchester City last night is still unbelievable to think about especially for a professional footballer who gets paid a princely sum each week.

The seriousness of the issue can best be witnessed by the words and body language of Carlos Tevez and Roberto Mancini. As you can see from the following videos, the differences between the attitudes of Tevez and Mancini are quite remarkable. Tevez acts like a spoiled child, smirking at the question in English and then letting another man communicate his words. Words that are empty and that don’t take any accountability. Mancini on the other hand is incensed. He acts like a father whose child has let him down, and throws up his hands as if there’s nothing more he can do.

Watch the post-match interview with Roberto Mancini where he discusses his team’s performance against Bayern Munich, as well as answers questions about what happened with Tevez:


And watch the video from the press conference where he goes into more detail about what happened:


And watch the post-match interview with Carlos Tevez here where he gives his side of the story, albeit through a translator.


After living in England for five years, you would think that Tevez would be comfortable enough answering a question in English, wouldn’t you?

Meanwhile, here is Tevez’s statement regarding the events from last night:

“I would like to apologise to all Manchester City fans, with whom I have always had a strong relationship, for any misunderstanding that occurred in Munich.

“They understand that when I am on the pitch I have always given my best for the club.

“In Munich on Tuesday I had warmed up and was ready to play. This is not the right time to get into specific details as to why this did not happen. But I wish to state that I never refused to play.

“There was some confusion on the bench and I believe my position may have been misunderstood.

“Going forward I am ready to play when required and to fulfil my obligations.”

    good riddance to this piece of garbage character. tevez is a disgrace to football. but no one is talking about eden dzeko fuming at the manager for substituting him. when the gaffer takes you off, you accept it and get on with it and let the guy with the fresh pair of legs play in peace. he needs to be made an example of as well. no matter how talented you are as a football player, you should show respect to the club, the gaffer, your teammates, and supporters who pay their money to see you play. city fans who had to pay for their travels, tickets, and visas to munich. how gutted they must be feeling. this is just plain arrogance and unprofessional ism from tevez and to a lesser extent, eden dzeko. it’s not the first time it’s happened with tevez though. and what the heck is dzeko moaning about?? the guys in the starting XI every week. shut up and play!!!
