Tevez needs two weeks - Mancini

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says Carlos Tevez is at least two weeks away from being match fit and says the striker needs to play in more reserve matches before being considered for the first team.

Mancini says the Argentine must undergo a "pre-season" after missing five months of the season after allegedly refusing to play against Bayern Munich in a Champions League match in September.

The Italian also confirms the striker has apologised to him and that the matter is now closed.
