Manchester United's new boy Carlos Tevez has given an exclusive interview to Icons.com.
The striker, part of a three way tug of war between West Ham, Manchester United and his agent in the summer, has finally made an appearance for Manchester United and set up a beautifully struck goal by Paul Scholes.
He says of his arrival at Manchester United, 'Every single thing related to Old Trafford is amazing. When I was a little kid, I never thought that I was going to be in a place like this. I dreamt of playing in a real field, but I never imagined something as fantastic as this.'
And when asked about whether he can understand what Sir Alex Ferguson says he admits:
'It hasn`t been easy for me to learn English this first year, but I`ll keep on studying it. Anyway, I always find a way to be understood. I haven't been able to talk a lot to Mr Ferguson, but I`ve been told that he likes the way I play and that I always do my best in the field.'
He also says that team is 'excellent' and the club need them all to play their part to realise their ambitions again this season.
Tevez also says he tried not to let all the speculation affect him this summer adding, 'I`ll never forget West Ham. It was the first European club that trusted me; they treated me very well, so they`ll be always in my heart. The managers, my team-mates and, above all, the fans, who liked me as soon as I arrived there. I hope I paid them back some of the love they gave me. If we had gone down, it would have been the biggest sadness of my life.' And 'I could never celebrate if I scored a goal against them...'
On English football he says 'It`s hard, it`s very physical, it`s quite tough. But, after having overcome the first challenge, I like it more every day. Having fought to stay in the Premiership with West Ham made me stronger, more mature, and helped me to try to better myself every day. Now, in Manchester, I`ll feel again the sensation I like the most: to fight for the championship, just like I did in Boca, Corinthians and in the Argentinian national team.'
Blimey, an Argentinian saying OUR football is tough... !
