Carlos Tevez is one of the best players ever. The strength and speed he possessed made this 173cm tall player feared by many opposing players. Playing with a number of big European clubs, Carlos Tevez has been recognized as a reliable striker who diligently scores goals.
Starting his career at Boca Juniors, Tevez then joined Corinthians. Being the league’s best player in the Brazilian Football Confederation version, his talent wafted up to the Blue Continent. Only a season in Brazil, Tevez and his compatriot, Javier Mascherano, joined the Premier League club, West Ham United.
Continuing to perform brilliantly, Tevez spectacularly became the best player of The Hammers. Getting interested in his talent, Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, intended to bring this Argentine player to Old Trafford. Until August 10, 2007, Tevez was officially loaned by United.
After being recruited as a permanent player of the red devil, Carlos Tevez continued to perform brilliantly. His playing style which doesn’t want to lose is very big for MU. Together with Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez successfully formed a deadly trio.
However, his story with Manchester United did not end sweetly. He defected to a neighboring club and was considered a traitor by Manchester United fans.
Patrice Evra even had a tantrum when he discovered Tevez had moved to Manchester City. Evra did not understand Tevez’s decision. Furthermore, he has already considered Tevez as one of his best friends.
“Carlos Tevez is a close friend of mine. But I wasn’t happy when he joined Manchester City. I’m really upset because he is a great player. “
“There are two different sides presented on this story. On the one hand, I understand it is a football so things like this can be complicated, but on the other hand, I don’t like it when he moves to City,”
Following the controversy over his move to Manchester City. Carlos Tevez admitted at that time he had never been offered a contract by United. In fact, he had become an important pillar in every match and often scored goals. In total, he had scored 34 goals in 99 matches with red devils.
Tevez’s neat performance also played an important role in United’s success in winning two Premier League titles, one League Cup trophy, one Champions League title, and one Club World Cup trophy.
When he was getting interviewed, Tevez said,
“I spent 2 years at MU and Ferguson just told me that they were planning to offer a contract at that time so that I could survive,”
“We entered the Champions League final in Rome (2009), but I still didn’t get a contract. Then I went to City and they protested. I never got an offer to stay at United and I thought, I was free to go. “
At that time, Tevez seemed to want to clear his name in the eyes of United’s supporters who accused him of being a traitor. But it seemed that their support has changed permanently into a scolding.
Even not only United’s fans who were disappointed. United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was said to be very disappointed with the decision of Carlos Tevez.
