In-form Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez attributes his successful return to the side to his Blues teammates.

In-form Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has thanked his Blues teammates following his successful return to Roberto Mancini's side.

The Argentinian, scored a hat-trick in the 6-1 victory at Norwich yesterday and credited his form to his City colleagues.

"It wasn't easy, coming back to training," Tevez told City TV.

"I want to say thank you to my colleagues for all the support they have given me since I arrived."

Tevez added that the golf swing celebration he produced showed that he felt the split between him and the club was firmly behind them.

"It was an important goal, not just for me but it was important for the people, for the club and for the fans, for my colleagues, for Roberto," said Tevez, who was filmed playing golf while he was AWOL in Argentina.

"We all went through some difficult times. That's why I celebrated the way I did because I have my feet on the floor and I am happy for everyone."

The 27-year-old also insisted that City are not out of the title race, despite being five points behind leaders and rivals Manchester United.
