Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists estranged striker Carlos Tevez does not have a problem with him.
The player's advisor Kia Joorabchian on Friday claimed Tevez's relationship with his manager had never been good and there had been "feuds" throughout their time together.
This has come as a surprise to Mancini, who has always got the impression he had a good working relationship with a player he made his skipper at the start of last season.
"Carlos doesn't have any problem with me," said the City boss.
Tevez now looks increasingly likely to remain at City after Tuesday's transfer window has closed.
It has been claimed Tevez wants to join AC Milan, which is the reason why approaches from Inter Milan and Paris St Germain were unsuccessful.
Presently though, the 27-year-old remains in Argentina, as he has been for over two months.
There have been suggestions he will return if his future is not sorted this week, leaving Mancini with a tricky problem trying to reintegrate a player in his squad who has taken such an extreme stance.
"Everyone should always answer for his behaviour," added Mancini.
"If a player is at one club and wants to go to another, it is an option for the player. Maybe for the club it is a big problem."
