Carlos Tevez believes he can have a "great" season at Manchester City after declaring that he feels "valued" at the Etihad Stadium again.
Tevez, 28, scored a superb goal in Sunday's Community Shield victory over Chelsea and said he is playing with renewed confidence.
He was praised by Roberto Mancini after the game and the pair, who had a fractious relationship last season, have been reconciled.
Tevez did not appear for City for six months when, after his refusal to warm up in September's Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, he returned to his native Argentina and was fined by the club.
Mancini had declared the former captain was "finished" but, after AC Milan did not match City's asking price in the January transfer window, Tevez remained in Manchester.
