Carlos Tevez admits he is homesick but will honour his contract at Manchester City

Carlos Tevez has spoken of his heartache at being separated from his two young daughters in Argentina but insists he will see out his five-year contract at Manchester City. The homesick striker was given permission to spend time with Florencia, 5, and baby Katie in Buenos Aires earlier this season, and only last month reiterated claims that he may quit the game for good. Thinking of home: Carlos Tevez admits he misses his family life in Argentina However, Tevez believes he will stay for the remaining three-and-a-half years of his current deal, saying: 'I miss my family like anyone in the world, but I am happy here in Manchester. 'It's a few months since I have been able to see my daughters and it has been tough. It's not easy for me living and breathing football all day while my little girls are in Buenos Aires. Doting dad: Tevez with his oldest daughter Florencia 'But I know it's a sacrifice that has to be made when you've made a commitment like I have done with City - and it's something I'm going to see through.' Tevez was involved in a furious row with manager Roberto Mancini after he was substituted towards the end of Saturday's win over Bolton, 24 hours after team-mates Mario Balotelli and Jerome Boateng were involved in a training ground fight. 'Like any club there are both good and bad vibes,' added Tevez. 'In any dressing-room, you are going to have the odd problem, just like within any household.' Bolton captain Kevin Davies has criticised Tevez's reaction to being taken off and hit out at the other City players, claiming the way they went to ground too easily was 'embarrassing'. Davies said: 'When there is not much contact and they go down screaming, it is embarrassing from a man's point of view. 'I don't like to see players at any standard feigning injury and trying to get players booked or sent off.'  Tevez warns Man City team-mates they must step up to land the titleBalotelli will stay with Manchester City 'for years', insists striker's agentDavies blasts City's 'embarrassing' divers and dismisses title chancesMANCHESTER CITY FC
