Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has claimed that Roberto Mancini 'treated him like a dog'.
Tevez, 28, had admitted that he is keen to "win over" the club's fans following his spell away from Manchester, but his strained relationship with Mancini remains.
"He's in the middle of an argument so then he tells me to keep on warming up and treats me like a dog," said Tevez.
"So, when he spoke to me in that tone of voice I said 'No I'm not going out.' I was willing to play but the coach was in such a foul mood because he had that argument with Dzeko.
"He started on me as well, started swearing at me. That was because I was calm. Mancini said some horrible things to me."
City had hoped for a reconciliation between Mancini and Tevez.
