Vieira: Everyone loves Tevez

Patrick Vieira hopes Carlos Tevez will extend his contract with Manchester City and said "everyone loves Carlos in the dressing room".

• Jolly: Patrick Vieira interview

Tevez was expected to leave City after agitating for a move when he struggled to settle in Manchester, and indeed manager Roberto Mancini said the striker was "finished" at the club when he refused to warm up in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in September 2011.

But Vieira, who is now City's football development executive, insisted the Argentine is a popular figure and argued that one of the club's best pieces of business was keeping the 28-year-old.

"Carlos is a person everyone loves in the dressing room and hopefully he will stay," Vieira, who played alongside Tevez at Eastlands, said. "We are talking about one of the best players of his generation. One of the best signings we made last year was to keep Carlos."

Tevez, who has entered the final two years of his contract, has scored four goals in four games this season, leading Mancini to praise him for his attitude and performances.

Patrick Vieira is an ambassador for Western Union's new PASS initiative, turning every pass in this season's UEFA Europa League into funding for one day's education for young people around the world. He said: "Where I come from, opportunities for a quality education are rare. Football was my ticket to success, but for the vast majority of young people education is the key that allows them to become whatever they want to be. That's why I'm supporting this campaign."
