Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has urged Argentina boss Diego Maradona to leave Carlos Tevez out of the squad to face Russia next week.
Tevez is currently struggling with a heel injury and will be unavailable for City’s upcoming friendlies.
“We don’t think Carlos should play for his international team and we’d prefer him to stay back next week,” Hughes told the club’s official website.
“The Argentine doctor came over and he’ll be speaking to Maradona today. He’ll probably want to check and see how Carlos is now.
“Ideally, I’d prefer that he wasn’t selected. He’s not trained all pre-season.
“He had an injury from his last international then banged the same area when he slipped in the shower in South Africa.
“He’ll be fine for the start of the season, but he’s still not able to put his full weight on it.”
