Tevez Did NOT 'Blame' Fergie

Tevez Did NOT 'Blame' Fergie

It is of course the S*n's fault, again... in this one thing we should follow the example of Liverpool and urge our players not to talk to them.

Carlos Tevez did talk to them and they of course invented a headline which looked rather tasty and was picked up by the other papers too, unperturbed by the little fact that it was not true.

So what they wrote? They claimed Tevez blamed Fergie for blunting his goalscoring instincts. Now here's what the Argentinian himself said.

'I'm not as effective in the area any more. The person up front has to do a lot more for the team than score goals.

'They have to play more for the team and I think I've sacrificed myself recently. I'm not as dangerous.

'That is something I've lost. I have to get that back. I used to score great goals. But something strange has happened.

'I feel better if I play a front role but I also play as a No.9 when I have to.

'I can do that. I'm ready to adapt for the team.'


You see the last sentence? He's ready to adapt. Far from blaming, he accepts this role.

By the way, he's perfectly right in analysing his situation. Ronaldo's incredible form last season, Rooney's return to goalscoring and Berbatov's arrival all contributed to deprive Tevez of goalscoring chances.

Sad but the season is long, there will be many games in which he will score goals. Last season he was deadly enough in the area in very important games. Need I enlist them? Liverpool, Lyon, Spurs, Blackburn, Chelsea, Roma... and a few more.

Tevez won't be the main man here, the No. 1 goalscorer, quite simply because we have too much attacking quality. But it seems to me that he more or less knows this and is still desperate to sign for us - and that's one more reason to finally seal that deal.

But it's still worrying. Tevez should score more, he is a flair player, one who keeps you on the edge of your seat. Why turn him to a workhorse? I must say it has also got a lot to do with the persistence with Scholes: as he can't run, someone else has to cover the distance and that is Tevez, or Park, or Rooney... sometimes all three...

If you guys don't offer this man a long-term contract and quit using him as a "squad player" he will be off. He has some unique experience on how to get transferred about, and he knows exactly what he is saying when talking to the Press... Ignore him at your peril!
