Everyone in the football world has had their opinion canvassed regarding Carlos Tevez and his decision not to play for Manchester City at the Allianz Arena has been met with widespread condemnation.

Tevez has been suspended for two weeks following his apparent reluctance to replace Samir Nasri against Bayern Munich, with many now predicting that the club will do everything to terminate the player’s contract.

However, one Premier League manager who can see Tevez playing again is Alan Pardew, with the Newcastle boss stating he wouldn’t be surprised to see the Argentine return to Eastlands and feature for City.

Pardew was in charge of West Ham when Tevez and Javier Mascherano were thrust upon him in 2006 and feels as though there is still the potential for the matter to be resolved.

“Sometimes it can be overcome by a performance on the pitch. Tevez could still be forgiven,” Pardew said.

“You never know in football. There have been massive conflicts in the past and then suddenly, it is ironed out.

“Who would have thought Harry Redknapp would have gone from Southampton manager back to Portsmouth or, for that matter, that Alex McLeish would go from Birmingham to Aston Villa as manager?”
