Tévez injured?

More news from the prolific Ian Herbert: Carlos Tévez has picked up an ankle knock and may be out of the Vodacom Challenge final. We may have to wait until the Barnsley game to see him play in the shirt.

Carlos Tevez may return from Manchester City’s pre-season tour of South Africa without any competitive football, with his bruised heel threatening to rule him out of the final match in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Tevez aggravated the bruising when he undertook his first training session in the Kings Park stadium on Monday evening and though it is not a serious problem - City’s medical staff would have patched him up with a pain killing injection for a competitive match - Mark Hughes is weighing up whether he wants to take any risk. The squad were in transit from Durban to Johannesburg yesterday and did not train but Hughes will have a better idea today of the player’s readiness.

Speaking of journalists, the Daily Mail today(!) reported

"Darius Vassell has joined Turkish Super Lig outfit Ankaragucu on a free transfer following his release by Manchester City."

Now thats finger-on-the-pulse journalism for ya! ;-)

I'm pretty sure the transfer was officially confirmed today. When Vassell flew out about a month ago it was only for talks.

Jackblue that's offensive and untrue I'm going to remove it.

Well his photo with fans is definitely a month old at any rate (though why it really matters I'm not too sure)
