In a recent interview the Argentine striker admitted that he was edging close to retirement last season after his well-publicised dispute with Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini.
"Last year I almost retired," Tevez told 'Rock and Closs'.
"I had lost the desire to play, alone in my room, crying. When the bad times come, they all come together. With the Argentina national team we were eliminated from the Copa America at home, after the fight with Roberto [Mancini] I did not want anything more to do with football.
"Luckily today I'm fine, I regained the desire to play."
The fall out accured during a Champions League match between Manchester city and Bayern Munich when Tevez refused to follow Mancini's instructions when he ordered him to warm up on the touchline.
The 28-year old admitted that his relationship with Mancini has improved in recent times. He also admitted that he feels a lot more relaxed when on the pitch today than before, making him feel more confident in front of goal this season.
"My relationship with Mancini is cordial, I'm hot blooded, I do not like to go out or be on the bench," he added.
"Before, when he took me out of the team or did not include me on initial lineup, I insulted him ... now I'm more relaxed."
"Physically I'm fine. I feel good and fast. Maybe I'm missing goal-hunger, now I think more about accompanying the play or generating a pass-goal."
Tevez has been on a good run of form lately. He has scored 10 goals in 28 matches for the Citizens this season.
