Mancini accepts Tevez apology

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini reveals he has accepted the apology of Carlos Tevez following the Argentine striker's return from a period of absence without leave, lauding him as a "top striker".

Mancini states Tevez "needs maybe two or three weeks" in order to regain match fitness, but hints he will not find it easy to walk straight back into a team that sits top of the Premier League table.
