Maradona is Carlos Tevez’s voice of reason

According to Diego Maradona, the man responsible for Carlos Tevez's triumphant return to Manchester City after months in exile after his fallout with Roberto Mancini over whether he would enter a Champions League match is Diego Maradona.

From the Belfast Telegraph:

"I told Tevez, 'you must go back now'," Maradona told national press."I said that because he was losing money — but also because he needed to play football again," he added.

So not only is Maradona Tevez's most trusted source of sound logic, but he is also apparently the striker's accountant. Which is even more terrifying for Carlos considering how much Maradona owes the Italian government in back taxes.
