Tevez will not captain Man City this season

Mancini has decided that Vincent Kompany will be taking the armband permanently.

Mancini said: “The captain is Vinny Kompany.

“The reason is simple. Carlos in the summer wanted to leave the club for family reasons.

“I respected his opinion to leave the club. But Carlos is here now, we didn’t find any solution for him.

“He is a fantastic player for us because he can score 20 goals in one year – but I decided in the summer Vinny was the captain.”
