" his relationship with 'certain executives and individuals' had broken down beyond repair". Grow up Tevez. You are getting paid an OBSCENE amount of money for the privilege of playing sport. A sport that millions of people can only dream about playing professionally. Nurses, Police, Firemen, Social workers, soliders¿¿..these are the people who are important in this world, just do what you get paid handsomely to do and stop whinging. Same goes for you Rooney. I am sick of self-involved, prima donna players moaning about how unfair it all is. Try living on a pittance of a pension for a while¿. It may give you some perspective.

How can people say he is in it for the money? Did you read the statement, the contract is unchanged. He's recieving no more money. The Manchester City chairman had a part to play in this, as for Everton, im disappointed about the loss but if you said that City could be third for Christmas,at the starts of the season, I would of went for it, upwards and onwards, CTID.

@Matthew Coe, what a fool you really are, its fans like you that make ur team a laughing stock, get with the real world, ur a pretender, just like your squad, full of average players earning a fortune, united have more talent on there bench then you do in ur starting 11, and thats coming from an arsenal fan, when will you realise, manchester has been red for 30 odd years even longer, a few hit n miss results over the corse of a season will not turn it blue, no matter how hard you try, your ignorance and arrogance is your downfall im afraid, and same goes for your team.... by the way, whats the city everton score ?? yeah thought so ;) merry christmas ha ha

Oh god bless the power of money!! Once Mr Rooney got away with it, Mr T figures he can do the same :-/ Do we need these sort of players in the PL?

We all know that he want's more money and he has obviously got the money otherwise he would still be moaning and saying he wants to go back to Argentina to see his family, bet its just a excuse for Man.City to beg for him to stay and give him more money. Football is turning into a joke. And as for Gerrard on the list of loyal players, almost came to Chelsea twice.

I give it 3 weeks before he's whining that he's homesick and wants to leave again.

i do not respect Rooney's sudden U-Turn but at least he had the decency to come out and face the cameras and explain his reasons. I very much doubt Tevez will do the samething.

Michael M (Manchester City fan) says...

Can i get the Skybet odds on Fabregas doing this next week? Because i think i'm on to a top earner! First Rooney, then Tevez. Just glad City have put their foot down and not been held to randsome.. So we are to believe at least

Money rules football and is also ruining football! Tevez done a Rooney, threw the toys and sapt the dummy, then get's more pocket money to stop whinging! Seriously, a wage cap would sort greedy players out. Paying over 1/4 of a million a week to any football player is crazy! I can see Man City fading away in the next few years through spending and paying too much on players. City fans, enjoy it while you can. It'll be hard for City to sell any players on massive wages. The team will stagnate as will the players. As I said, cap wages at teams. This should then show what players at any team are worth even £100k a week! Players sign a contract with a weekly wage. They then get, performance depending, a 'rise' if they and the team do well! If you want commitment, value for money and no whinging players who are actually happy for what they get paid for, look to Barcelona!

there has to be a behind the scenes situation here, i dont think he wants more money! i think he is losing the plot! first rooney, now tevez!! maybe torres will get in on the act and start complaining too as its pretty clear he doesnt want to be here anymore either!

'nearly' He didnt go and thats all that matters. To say Gerrard isnt loyal is a false comment.

Tevez its only a bit of snow you don't have to leave the country to avoid it! On a more serious note we will see how commited Tevez is to City come the summer transfer window. That would make more sense to leave then so he can get more money which appears to be the case of what he wants. Lets see what club he is at Sept 1st 2011 i will bet money it's not Man City.

The guy cupped his ears and ran to Fergie on the United bench when he scored against United in Carling Cup....! Now he is cupping his hands in front of himself so City can fill it with extra cash....! The guy is more interested in Money than Football....!
