Balotelli appeals to City fans not to jeer returning Tevez

London, Mar 10(ANI): Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has pleaded to fans not to heckle striker Carlos Tevez after he makes a come back in the squad from his self-imposed exile.

Tevez has not played for City for five months but is in contention to make a comeback in the first team squad, after patching up his public dispute with manager Roberto Mancini and the club.

The Argentine striker made his first public appearance back in a reserve team game against Bolton in midweek, and marked the occasion with a goal.

Balotelli believes Tevez's return will enhance club's title aspiration, but cautioned fans against booing him, as that might have an opposite effect.

"I think the supporters have to be like they were before," The Daily Mail quoted Balotelli, as saying.

"They should not care because Carlos is here and, if they make pressure on Carlos, then they make pressure on all the team. So they shouldn't do nothing," he added. (ANI)
