Digital billboards will run in Manchester tonight (30 September) with the greeting “Welcome to Carlos, Manchester”. Fans’ pressure group MUST developed the campaign.

Tevez has been vilified this week for allegedly refusing to come on as a substitute in the club’s defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday (26 September). He has since been suspended for two weeks
