Carlos Tevez, soon to be a Citeh player, is already acting the Citeh way: he’s making a fool of himself via the media. Apparently he knew after Berbatov had been signed that his career at United was over.

‘I did not feel supported after they signed Berbatov, because I was the man for the job he was bought to do.

‘Ferguson told me not to be worried about Berbatov’s arrival, but I did not like it when he started to put me on the bench often. I gave my life for the Manchester United shirt.’


So let’s get it straight Carlos. Are you a tall, creative attacker with an excellent first touch and astonishing vision? No, you’re not. You’re a hard working, energetic striker with the knack of being in the right place at the right time. Which is good but very different from what Berbatov has to offer and that’s why he was bought. Tactical option, you know.

And if you hadn’t been busy sulking, you would have noticed that you got the nod ahead of him in such minor games like Liverpool at Old Trafford and Anfield or against Arsenal in a Champions League semi-final. You know, when Fergie felt that a different tactical set-up was necessary…

Tevez gave his life for the United shirt, yes. But that does not mean he should be immune to criticism or that he should never sit on the bench. He had an excellent relationship with us – why does he insist upon souring it now after his departure?
