Carlos Tevez is determined to win more silverware with Manchester City after tasting Premier League and FA Cup success over the past two seasons.

The 28-year-old has been in sparkling form for Roberto Mancini’s side this term, netting three goals in three games in the English top flight, as the Citizens look to retain their crown.

“What I want is to keep winning silverware,” Tevez said. “That is why you train and play – to keep winning trophies – and that pressure will always be there.

“It’s like every Sunday you take an exam. In football you have to play a game under pressure.

“But I don’t put myself under extra pressure to become a champion – that is just something I want to achieve.”

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.

And the forward admitted he is appreciates the support of the club’s fans despite last season’s controversy.

“I don’t know if I’m an idol for the City fans, but I am very grateful to them,” he continued.

“They have always treated me well even after all of the things that were said away from the pitch.

“They have always welcomed me, and for that I am grateful.

“Whatever I do, they make me feel at home and I would like to thank the fans for that.”

He added: “Playing football makes me happy – it’s what pleases me.

“Everything related to football makes me happy, but for me there is one more thing, my family, which is the most important aspect of my life.

“It’s my family first and football afterwards.”
