Carlos Tevez, the Manchester City forward who spent much of last season refusing to play for the club, now insists he wants to stay with the Premier League champion beyond the two years remaining on his current contract.
The Argentina striker's impressive form continued at Liverpool where he scored City's second goal, after an horrendous error by home defender Martin Skrtel, to secure his side a point in a 2-2 draw at Anfield.
This time last year, Tevez was about to stage his notorious 'strike' in which he refused to play for the club after a disagreement with manager Roberto Mancini during a UEFA Champions League tie at Bayern Munich.
But having spent much of last season in his native Argentina, Tevez returned to England and helped City to the title.
Now, the forward claims he will not only see out his remaining two seasons but would consider playing for the Eastlands club beyond that.
"Yeah, I'd have no problem staying," said Tevez.
"I have two years on my contract and, yeah, I could stay longer.
"The new season is good for me. I have lost seven kilos, so that's good for me and the club. Last year was difficult for me. After I came back, I played and we were champions. That was the best bit of last season.
"A year ago, was the most difficult bit. Now is now. The problems of last season are finished. Now I'm happy, Roberto is happy, the club is happy. The problem is finished.
"I play all the time for my family, my father, my mother, my brothers and sisters in Argentina. It is difficult for me because they are in Argentina, but this is my job and I like football."
Tevez was gifted his equaliser - his 100th goal in English football - thanks to a dreadful slip and backpass from Skrtel, which completed the scoring after Skrtel himself had headed an opener.
Skrtel's goal was equalised by Yaya Toure before Luis Suarez restored Liverpool's lead from a well-struck free-kick.
"Carlos is on good form at the moment and I'm happy for him," said Mancini.
"If he plays like that of course he can stay."
