Roberto Mancini Says There is No Problem With Carlos Tevez, Forward Could End Three-Month Long StrikeManchester City manager Roberto Mancini decided to speak about his Carlos Tevez dilemma on Tuesday. According to the Daily Mirror, Tevez's advisor, Kia Joorabchian said the relationship between Mancini and Tevez is poor, but Mancini says that is not the case.

"Carlos doesn't have any problem with me," Mancini said. The Italian also referenced the trouble his team has had in receiving a fair bid for Tevez during the January transfer window.

"If a player is at one club and wants to go to another, it is an option for the player. Maybe for the club it is a big problem," said Mancini.

Tevez, who has been on strike in his native Argentina for nearly three months, seems to be stuck at Manchester City until the summer.

Tevez wanted to go to AC Milan, but after failed bids, the Serie A club said it will not bring any new players into its team in January.

His trip to Argentina during the middle of the season will challenge Mancini, and the Manchester City boss will have to find a way to fit the Argentine international back into the squad.

It seems as if Tevez wants to stop losing money, he will have to return to Manchester and finish out the 2011-12 campaign. The Argentine has not played professional soccer for over two months, and clubs are not likely to find an unfit player valuable.
