London, Apr 30 (ANI): Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini has asked his ace striker Carlos Tevez to leave the club if he is unhappy.
Tevez admitted in a recent interview he was unimpressed with the strict training regime introduced under Mancini.
That alerted top European clubs like Real Madrid and led to reports the striker could leave if City fails to secure the Champions League football next term.
Mancini does not feel there is a major problem but told Tevez to take the Blues into the top four, and then come and talk to him about his future, The Sun reports.
Mancini said: "If a top player is not happy to stay here, it's better to go to another team. This is the same for Tevez, for Manu Adebayor, for me, everyone. It is important that, when a manager or player works in a team, he must be happy to work in this team.
"It's not good for the club, squad or the player if he is not happy. I don't know if Tevez is unhappy but he must be content because we have to play three important games."
"I think he's happy as he's worked very well the last two weeks. I hope he can score three or four goals in the next three games and then we can decide if he has a problem," mancini added.
Craig Bellamy is another City star who has been reported to be eyeing the Eastlands exit door this summer.
"If a player is not happy, it's better to change squads. That goes for England or Italy," Mancini said.
The former Inter Milan chief was surprised by Tevez's complaints about the double training sessions he introduced following his arrival in December. (ANI)
