Tevez refused to come onto the pitch in City’s Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini stated that Carlos Tevez would never play for the club again, after the game against Bayern Munich.
“We need to try to help Carlos,” said Zabaleta.
“He has been a really important player for us in the last two years but maybe this season he has had more games on the bench.
“Sometimes that is difficult, and more so for strikers, who need to play, need to score, need to feel confidence.”
“Everybody always wants to play, maybe it’s like that,” said the 26-year-old.
“It is a difficult moment for him but we need to be calm.
“All players have different characters and sometimes the decision is going to be very difficult for everybody because we have too many players.
“We need to accept that sometimes we are on the bench but we always have to be looking to get into the team.”
