Italian delighted with the attacker’s treble in the Cup.
Manchester City head coach Roberto Mancini claimed that he wanted the police to stop front man Carlos Tevez more often if it meant that the little Argentinian would then score a hat-trick for the team.
The Italian was speaking after City had thrashed Championship strugglers Barnsley 5-0 in their FA Cup quarter-final meeting at the Ethiad stadium on Saturday, where Argentina international Tevez was on hand to register a treble either side of half-time, just days after been arrested by police on suspicion of driving while disqualified.
“Now it’s important that Carlo continues to score because we need his goals in this end of the season and also for the Cup and after I don’t know what can happen in the summer,” said Mancini in his post-match press conference.
“Carlo has another year contract. It depends on him. In this moment we can say nothing. Our focus will be only on the last two months (of the season).
“If it has an effect on him I hope the police can stop him every day! After this he scored three goals! I hope also next Friday!”
