Tevez confirms he wants to leave Manchester City

Carlos Tevez says he wants to leave English premier league football club Manchester City for family reasons.

The Argentina captain helped City finish third in the Premier League last season and qualify for the Champions League for the first time.

The 27-year-old, who joined City from rivals Manchester United in 2009 on a five year deal worth $50 million, says he needs to be closer to his two daughters.

City manager Roberto Mancini has repeatedly insisted Tevez will stay at the club after helping them to their first major piece of silverware in 35 years when they won the FA Cup this year.
