Mancini Says Tevez Can Stay at Manchester City: Soccer Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable Internet links.

Tevez’s Welcome

Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini told Carlos Tevez he is welcome to stay at the club after the Argentine striker said he wants to, the Sun reported.

“Why not? He has a contract,” Mancini, who fell out with Tevez earlier this season, was cited as saying by the newspaper. “And he is a good player.”

Barca Wants Luiz

Chelsea defender David Luiz is an off-season target for Barcelona even after a turbulent career since joining the Premier League team 14 months ago, the Daily Mirror reported.

The Brazilian is at the top of Barcelona’s shopping list as it seeks a center-half, left-back and striker, the Mirror said. The Spanish club will probably have to transfer players before it can buy, the Mirror added.

No Juventus Move

Nemanja Vidic’s agent, Silvano Martina, ruled out the possibility of the Manchester United captain joining Juventus, the Daily Express reported.

“A future in Italy? You have to consider he has a non-EU passport and that would make it difficult for him to arrive in Serie A,” the Express cited Martina as saying. “I can assure you that I have never spoken with Juventus about Nemanja.”

Hodgson Conduit

England’s new manager, Roy Hodgson, wants to bring in an assistant coach who can double up as a conduit with the locker room and is targeting Everton defender Phil Neville, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The 35-year-old Neville, who played 59 times for England, has won respect for his role as Everton captain and has already been involved with England’s under-21 squad, the paper added.

Ferdinand, Terry

Hodgson plans to speak to Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand within the next week about the defender playing for England at next month’s European Championship, the Independent reported.

Hodgson has made it one of his priorities to find out if Ferdinand would be able to play in the same team as Chelsea’s John Terry, who faces court July 9 on charges of racially abusing Ferdinand’s younger brother Anton, the Independent said.

Harry History

Tottenham’s Harry Redknapp, who had been the bookmakers’ favorite for the England job, said he doesn’t expect to get the chance to manage the national team in the future following Hodgson’s appointment, the Sun reported.

“I don’t think it will ever happen now,” the Sun cited Redknapp as saying after Spurs beat Bolton 4-1 last night. “I’m fed up of hearing my name mentioned now. I’m history with that job. Roy deserves it, he’s got it and I’m sure he’ll make a great job of it.”
