Tevez 'very happy' at Man City

ESPN staff

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has said he is happy with life in England after a season dogged by uncertainty over his future.

Tevez, 28, spent five months of the season in self-imposed exile after a dispute with City manager Roberto Mancini but returned to play a role in City's Premier League triumph.

Back in Argentina, Tevez told an event organised by his former side Boca Juniors that his situation in England is now much improved, but also said he hopes to end his career at the Bombonera.

"My biggest wish is to finish my career in the Boca shirt," he told FoxSports. "I am still thinking the same as when I left - I want to retire here. I am here for whatever Boca need.

"But the truth is that I finished the season very happy in England. I am feeling good, I have no desire to be thinking that I want to leave, my family are happy."

The Argentine forward did, though, risk criticism in his homeland for comments about the national team, telling the audience he was quite happy be outside manager Alejandro Sabella's plans for the time being.

Tevez said: "I did not miss the Seleccion. I was happier watching from outside. I liked the team, but for now I do not want to be there. When I am called I will be there, of course."
