Fergie Is Not Getting Into The Tevez Case Now

Fergie Is Not Getting Into The Tevez Case Now

Look, I love Carlos Tevez and all. And he was absolutely brilliant today. But the timing of his comments, just when United are attempting to wrap up a third successive league title and aiming for a second Champions League victory in a row... suffice to say that it's unfortunate to be all immersed in himself these days...

His boss, though, wasn't going to be drawn into a war of words or anything.

'I didn't read the papers,' Sir Alex told Sky Sports.

'You hear things, but, look, he is a Manchester United player. The fans love him. Our fans love triers. When players try, the fans love that.'

And asked about the rumours, he merely repeated that Tevez was a Manchester United player. This cagey stance was not surprising: he's got some mild concerns, like a league game at Wigan in three days' time, to occupy his mind at the moment...

I found Tevez's appeal to the fans a tad tasteless, if I'm honest. Even if I'm alone with it. Couldn't really join in the chorus of 'Fergie, sign him up'.

I felt bad for him, because he does try really hard. When he scores a goal like that and has been begging to stay you have to feel for the guy. But his header against the post is a perfect example of why we can't pay that much money for him. I'd rather we risked that amount of money on someone who we think has the potential to be better (benzema) than waste it on someone who we know is not and will not ever be as good as or better than what we already have.

Benzema is not coming. Even if he did, he wouldn't work as hard as Tevez. Tevez's workrate frees up Rooney from having to work so hard as well.

Most time Tevez is just chasing down balls that he has given away anyway; and a lot of the time it just brings him deeper into midfield and stops him from being where he should be. We may not sign Benzema (that was just a suggestion of the type of player we need), but when we let tevez leave we will bring in a striker who may not run as much, but will do the job that tevez can't - lead the line. Both Rooney and Berba offer FAR greater quality as the second striker, so unless tevez grows 5 inches, gets faster, improves his positioning, first touch and finishing someone else will be taking his spot in the squad. Fergie may yet sign him up and prove me wrong, but all the signs suggest that he doesn't believe that tevez has the quality we need - afterall, he has never let a price tag put him off his man before!
