Carlos Tevez insists he is “very happy” at Manchester City and is raring to go ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Argentina international was rarely out of the headlines last term after he sparked controversy by refusing to warm-up during City’s Champions League group game at Bayern Munich.

The former Manchester United striker missed most of the season as a result of a self-imposed exile but returned late on to help City clinch their first ever Premier League crown.

Now, the 28-year-old forward is relishing the prospect of helping City defend their title and claims he is in top shape ahead of the new campaign.

“The pre-season games went very well,” Tevez told the Sun. “I was pleased with how I played and I am looking forward to the start of the Premier League and to start playing.

“For the first time in four or five years I have had a full month of pre-season training.”

“All the problems are part of the past and the truth is that I am very happy now.

“Now I feel settled, I feel good in myself and I’m working hard, the main aim is to be champions again.”
