Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez insists he is not on the verge of quitting the Eastlands club.

Speculation that the 26-year-old City star is considering an early retirement grew following a recent trip back home to Argentina, however the forward denies he is considering hanging up his boots.

“I’m happy here. I really am,” insisted Tevez. “I do miss my family, just like anyone would when they are not around. But I don’t see retirement happening for a long time to come.

“A sacrifice has to be made when you make a commitment like I have done with City and it is something I am going to see through. Once that job is done I will have plenty of time with my kids.”

Tevez has endured a difficult working relationship with City boss Roberto Mancini with the pair’s latest incident coming last weekend when the striker reacted badly when he was substituted late on against Bolton.

But Tevez played down the incident and believes it simply highlights the passion that both he and Mancini harbour for City.

“The most important thing is that, as players, we are all pulling in the same direction and trying to do our best for the club,” he said.

“Anything that goes on between us [Tevez and Mancini] off the pitch or in the dressing room stays there and he and I keep on fighting for the club.”
