Tevez wants Hughes to stay

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has insisted he is "100 per cent" behind manager Mark Hughes, urged amid reports that the Welshman could be on the verge of being sacked by the club's owners.

It is understood Hughes will be sacked regardless of today's result against Sunderland, with the agent of former Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink claiming on Friday that City have already made an approach.

But Tevez, who signed for City in the summer after a two-year stint with their rivals United, believes the club need to be "a bit patient''.

"When I first joined the club I had a long chat with Mark Hughes and he gave me a vision of how the club was going to go forward,'' Tevez told the Telegraph. "The reason I joined was because I believe in his vision. I believe in what he had to say.''

"I understand the desire to be the best. I believe in the club. I also believe in Mark. We will be a big club. I'm 100 per cent behind the manager. I'm really surprised that a question about his future even exists at such an early stage.

"Of course, we can do even more. Every team in the Premier League will say they can do better and we are no exception. But the team is in transition with a lot of new players coming in and we have had a lot of injuries.

"It will not happen straight away but I will assure you of one major point. I will give the club, the fans and Mark Hughes my 100 per cent support.

"We need to have stability and calm to allow the club to move forward. People should not panic. There is a great desire and atmosphere to achieve that exists and that comes from the manager.''
