Ex-Man Utd ace Carlos Tevez reveals brutal way he told Fergie he was joining Man City after snub for Berbatov | The Sun
CARLOS TEVEZ has revealed the brutal manner in which he told Sir Alex Ferguson he was ditching Manchester United for Manchester City in 2009.
The Argentine left the Red Devils for their noisy neighbours after two trophy-laden years at Old Trafford.
Tevez, now 39, was in and out of the starting XI during his second campaign – following the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham.
And before United's Champions League final clash with Barcelona in Rome, the forward had made his mind up.
Speaking to ESPNF10, as per Argentine-focused reporter Roy Nemer, Tevez revealed: "I was on loan at United.

Tevez started just 18 Prem games that season, scoring five times.

Neither were able to make an impact, however, with Barca comfortably winning 2-0.
