Carlos Tevez took his time leaving the pitch after he was substituted today, waving at all the stands. The decision to sub him off was met with boos from all around Old Trafford and as Sir Alex Ferguson gave his speech at the end, the Stretford End sang over the top of him, telling him to sign Tevez up.
Chants of Argentina were heard over and over as Tevez trailed behind the main group of players in the lap of honour around the pitch. After the game, Tevez confessed that maybe it was goodbye.
“Maybe goodbye,” said Tevez. “It’s very difficult. It’s emotional. I like Manchester, and I like the fans.”
