Argentine star Carlos Tevez, nicknamed "The Beast", is an enhanced version of Wehorst, who can score goals and catch up with his own bottom line from the front line. However, because of the transfer, he finally fell out with Sir Alex Ferguson, and even raised the slogan "Sir Alex Ferguson rests in peace" after moving to Manchester City. Even now that he has retired, the 39-year-old Tevez still resents the way Sir Alex treated him at Manchester United.
Tevez was loaned to Manchester United in 2007, during which he performed well, scoring 34 goals in various competitions and winning two Premier League titles and the Champions League trophy. However, Tevez did not complete the permanent transfer to the Red Devils. In 2009, he joined rival Manchester City, where he spent the next four seasons. Tevez insists that Sir Alex Ferguson was the reason for his decision to move to Manchester City.
The Argentine Beast stressed that he wanted to stay at Old Trafford, but Sir Alex made a false promise to him. Manchester United didn’t buy him out, so he didn’t hesitate when he received the invitation from Manchester City. "I don’t need to think too much, because I am angry with Ferguson. Tevez told ESPN, "As a coach, he is a phenomenon. He has been teaching at a club like Manchester United for so long, but something happened between me and him. 」
Tevez explained in detail: "I was loaned to Manchester United, and finally he told me:" Manchester United will buy you out, but I will bring Berbatov. Don’t worry, I brought him in to compete fairly with you. We will talk to your agent and reach an agreement on the contract and transfer. But in the end, they didn’t call the broker, and nothing happened. Time is running out. They began to want to lower my price. Every time I play, I perform, and the fans shout names. This is a year-long digestion process. 」
According to Tevez, before the 2009 Champions League final, he told Sir Alex Ferguson that he would join Manchester City as a revenge for United’s reneging on their words in the past year. "I have more or less accepted Sheikh Mansour’s proposal. After the final, I will take a private jet to meet him in Abu Dhabi with my family and solve the contract problem with Manchester City. All this happened before Manchester United’s Champions League final," Tevez added. "The day before the Champions League final against Barcelona, I told him that I would join Manchester City. 」
Tevez started 18 games in the Premier League that season and scored 5 goals, which he was not satisfied with. In that Champions League final, Sir Alex Ferguson finally arranged for him to play as a substitute in the second half, playing 20 minutes earlier than Berbatov, but neither of them played a role. Barcelona beat Manchester United 2-0. "Ferguson kept saying that he was going to buy me that season, and then he brought in Berbatov and didn’t let me play in the league. "The beast vomited.
Tevez then added: "It was like a dagger for him to tell him before the final that I was going to join Manchester City. But it is also true for me, because I love Manchester United. But for me, he didn’t keep his promise for a whole year, and he made me miserable. It hurts me a lot because I love Manchester United. I like playing football at Old Trafford. Playing football there is like a bomb explosion. It gives me that feeling. Then the chief came, and they told me that they wanted me to be the standard bearer of Manchester City. He showed me the blueprint for the future, just like the club is today. 」
After the official transfer of Tevez, Manchester City released a controversial advertisement in the local area, in which Tevez opened his arms and the poster read "Welcome to Manchester". Tevez later made 148 appearances for Manchester City, scored 73 goals and assisted 35 times, which helped the team win the Premier League and the FA Cup. However, his time with the Blue Moon also ended in a broken relationship because of falling out with coach Mancini.
