Carlos Tevez has admitted that it will be ‘difficult to stay at Corinthians’ now that the Argentinean striker has clashed with supporters.

Could that put Sir Alex Ferguson on alert as Manchester United have been linked with the 22-year-old before and we are in the market for a striker after Ruud van Nistelrooy sealed his move from Old Trafford to Real Madrid this week?

Tevez is friends with Argentina team mate Gabriel Heinze and was seen at a Corinthians press conference in a Reds shirt last season!

Tevez is looking for an exit from Brazilian side Corinthians because he gestured to the fans to shut up after scoring because they’d been jeering the team!

He said his wife and daughter and now ‘very scared’.

Adding: ‘They are very sad. Things which the Corinthians supporters did are not easy to forget.’

He has tried to build bridges but I’m not sure these quotes will really help! ‘First, they must respect me. I did those gestures because they insulted me. Otherwise, I would have done anything. They apologised and, so, I apologise to the entire Corinthians camp. I have to think it through very well. I have a daughter and it is not an easy thing. I am sure that I am not going to take them to the stadium any more.’
