Carlos Tevez to join Manchester City parade
Carlos Tevez was expected to be on Manchester City's FA Cup final victory parade this afternoon.
It had been thought Tevez would be flying back to Argentina after attending the club's player-of-the-year awards dinner last night.
However, it is now understood Tevez was always intending to remain in the UK to play a full part in the celebrations at the end of City's 35-year trophy drought.
"It was always Carlos' intention to be at the event this evening just as he wished to be there last night at the end of an excellent season," said a source close to the player.
Tevez's future remains shrouded in doubt, even though manager Roberto Mancini has twice in the past week stated his belief the South American will remain at Eastlands.
The former West Ham star finished the campaign as joint Golden Boot winner with Dimitar Berbatov.
