Tevez suffers injury

Carlos Tevez may return from Manchester City’s pre-season tour of South Africa without any competitive football, with his bruised heel threatening to rule him out of the final match in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Tevez aggravated the bruising when he undertook his first training session in the Kings Park stadium on Monday evening and though it is not a serious problem - City’s medical staff would have patched him up with a pain killing injection for a competitive match - Mark Hughes is weighing up whether he wants to take any risk.

Given Hughes has held most of the 'big guns' from the games so far, and that Tevez is likely behind in terms of fitness due to his international obligations, I can't see him lining up this weekend.
