Tevez Is Making A Fool Of Himself Now

Tevez Is Making A Fool Of Himself Now

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?

Ha look how youve turned on him. He makes Berbatov look average. Looking forward to you all turning on the lazy Bulgarian ***** next season when youre trailing behind Chelsea & Pool.

Yiddo, what are you talkig about mate? No one is turning on Carlos Tevez. This situation is simple. He's a good player who is not as good as Berba or Rooney - in fact he isn't even close in my opinion. Tevez has talked up his respect for United many times, but part of that is keeping your mouth shut and not slagging off the manager once you've left. Its perfectly fine for United fans to criticise his comments when they are complete rubbish. If he had played anywhere close to decent football this season he could probably argue that he should have been higher in the pecking order, but he was crap so he should shove off to city and talk about his new team, rather than bleat on about how badly treated he felt especially when he clearly wasn't. Berba has more right to complain than him because we actually signed him and even he didn't play all the big games.

This is silly. What exactly did he do to make a fool of himself? He was a striker, so naturally he felt his place was threatened when Burpatov was bought in. And okay, he did start a few matches, but how many times was he bought on as a 60th minute substitute and as an impact player? His ill feeling is plainly understandable. Its is you who is making a fool of yourself, publishing such articles.

I agree with JT_daniel. Tev just hinted that, no matter how well he performed, he just wouldn't get the "fair play" that he deserved. In other words, Fergie should have rotated them all fairly if they all performed well but in fact not quite. Tev simply hinted that Fergie used players like Berbatov based on favoritism, not entirely based on performance on the pitch, simply because Berbatov resembles Cantona (at least that is what Fergie thinks). This reminds me that Mark Hughes left Man Utd for the second time for more play time because Cantona got his contract extension. Fergie's favoritism has been no stranger. He likes those with elegant touch (but sometimes totally ineffective) rather than those with tough quality (in fact I sense that Tev is somewhat the same mold like Maradona. I bet Maradona would never be the player that Fergie liked.). If that is the case, for Tev, leaving is his best move, just like Mark Hughes did. So why you (the writer) slam him out of nothing?

you manchester fans are so pathetic, you dont seem to give any respect for a player who was partly responsible for almost all that you have won in the recent seasons, no player of Tevez's calibur would like to sit on the bench.......United are the biggest hypocrates i have seen, you feel in the same category as Madrid as both just keep on buying big players.......

shren007: Tevez will have to sit on the bench if he goes to any big team as squad rotation is more the exception than the rule nowadays. Each united player is responsible for the richly deserved winnings over the last two seasons - Tevez is just holding out for a 160k pay cheque every week. Get your facts right fool

I don't know why but I just feel a similar statement will be out from the tevez camp,especially if they sign eto'o.

For anybody that watched him on something other than match of the day, you'd know that Tevez made far less of a contribution this season than Berbatov. It's like N'Gog saying that Benitez favours Torres - of course he does - Torres is a better player -and its the same with Berba and Tevez, anyone who watched the two this season would know that.

Tevez is a better player than Berbatov--very different, but certainly a better partner for Rooney than the lazy Bulgarian. Enjoy.
