Teaching Carlos Tevez to box might not be a great idea, Man City

Dirty Tackle

Premier League champions Man City is in Austria to begin its preseason training and it appears it's already tempting fate with Carlos Tevez by teaching him how to box.

Yes, the man who has already turned on the club twice by demanding transfers and refusing to warm up more than he likes during matches, is being shown how to turn his disloyalty into combinations of punches that he can utilize before his next unapproved jaunt back to Argentina.

Under the instruction of City physio Lee Nobes, Tevez spars in the video above while probably imagining that his partner's hands are Roberto Mancini's head. With this newfound punching ability, there is even less chance that Samir Nasri makes it through this season without getting his teeth knocked in.
