Roberto Mancini tips Carlos Tevez to stay

ROBERTO MANCINI is confident Carlos Tevez will stay with Manchester City next season.

"I spoke with him many times in the last 20 days," said Mancini after last night's 3-0 win over Stoke at Eastlands in which Tevez scored twice, either side of a Joleon Lescott header.

"He has a five-year contract and he has told us he wants to stay. In December he had a problem but everyone can change his opinion. Carlos is an important player here. The feeling for him is good."
