Manchester City boss Roberto Mancnin has said there is no chance of Carlos Tevez leaving the club in the summer.
Tevez has been an inspirational figure for City since joining from rivals Manchester United last summer.
He has enjoyed a successful personal campaign, although Wednesday’s 1-0 loss at home to Tottenham ended City’s hopes of a Champions League place next season.
While Mancini had to fend off questions about his own future after the game, speculation has also suggested that Tevez might look to leave Eastlands.
The Argentina striker has previously questioned Mancini’s training methods, although he stated earlier this week that he wanted the manager to stay in charge.
And Mancini insists Tevez will definitely be staying.
“Carlos Tevez has a contract with Manchester City and he will be here next season,” he said.
