Manchester City striker Carlos Tévez back to his best, says David Platt
Manchester City assistant manager David Platt impressed with Carlos Tévez's attitude in the club's pre-season campaign
David Platt believes Carlos Tévez is back to his best, with the Manchester City assistant manager impressed by the forward’s commitment in pre-season.
“Carlos has worked ever so hard in pre-season,” Platt said.
“Since he has come back in he has really attacked his work and not had one day off.
“His goal was one of those you can remember him doing two years ago.
“He ducks inside, he goes away from people. That’s what he’s been missing and it was there again.”
The Argentine missed most of the campaign following the confrontation, before returning to Mancini’s first-team in March and scoring four goals as City won the Premier League title.
Platt believes both parties were guilty of making mistakes in their handling of the affair, and he is confident Tévez can excel at City this season.
“A lot was said and done last year. Everybody has got to hold their hands up and say mistakes were made,” he added.
“But what do you do? Carlos has still got two years left on his contract.
“He is a very good player and he is playing for Manchester City.
“It is not a case of putting water under the bridge, it is a case of saying we are all batting on the same wicket here and we go forward together.”
