Tevez out of FA Cup semi


LONDON – Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez will miss Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against his old club Manchester United and could be out of action for up to a month, City manager Roberto Mancini said on Thursday. The 27-year-old Argentine international injured his hamstring in the 3-0 defeat at Liverpool on Monday and, after initial hopes he could make a quick recovery, is now likely to be sidelined for much of the Premier League run-in.
“Tevez is not available for Saturday. I think he will recover in three or four weeks. It is a big problem but we cannot take any risks,” Mancini told a news briefing. “We have six games left and hopefully we can get Carlos back for the last two or three games.”
