McClair: Tevez Very Disrespectful

Two days after losing the Champions League final, Carlos Tevez spoke to the press about the manager’s decision to sub him on at the start of the second half, instead of playing him from the beginning. Despite contributing nothing in the 45 minutes he was on the pitch, Tevez claimed that we could have won the game had he started.

At the end of last month, Tevez made the same claims, although this time was a lot more critical of the manager.

Brian McClair has today spoken about Tevez’s disrespectful nature, saying he hopes the quotes were not true.

“I hope the alleged quote that Carlos Tevez was disrespected by being named as a sub in the Champions League final was wrong,” said McClair. “If it is correct, then it is very disrespectful to the players who were not selected at all.’’

    Carlos is a muppet for thinking we would have won with him in the starting XI. It was Iniesta and Messi who ran the show – so what difference does Tevez think he would have made? I know he runs around and closes people down – but he would have had to track all the way back to our own box. Fuck off to City.

    at manchester united ,under sir alex,you get taught how to speak to the media with respect and how to get your point cross without saying the wrong thing. if mcclair didnt do that his quote would be “tevez is a disrespectful anker and abuse should rain on his head at the next derby game, the peice of shit”

  3. ash says:

    He cant even score a penalty in the world cup qualifier then what could have done against barca. yeah i know maybe gain more sympathy by saying goobye to everyone.
    tevez is not a bad player but he couldnt have done more than what he did in the first season for united.
    Happy he is gone.

  4. Wiuru says:

    It only serves to re enforce the choice to let him go was right .

  5. Snoopy says:

    Tevez is a very good player….
    But a great club like Manchester United must sacrified some good player accordingly to the plan….
    As MU have many good player, it is not good for Tevez said the the quote since the is Alex Ferguson plan…..

    Anyways, happy to see him go but for sure that MU wont be go down after his move away!..

  6. AIG Alex is GOD says:

  7. shmoo says:

    fkin good ridance to the little fker, he can go and play for midtable mediocrity with citeh!!!!.. sky are reporting that united have made an offer for costa, happy days :)

  8. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    costa looks like it could be on

  9. Gudjohnsen says:

    I don’t know why, but it always annoys me when players are said to be “the next” someone, in Costa’s case the next Ronaldinho. Not sure why it bugs me so much, perhaps it’s because David Bellion was titled the next Henry, lol…

  10. Alpha_RS says:

    I can understand why Tevez is annoyed and perhaps he has a point that if he did start in the Champions League Final we would have attacked more.

    But you don’t wash your dirty linen in public.
    When you go up against SAF there will always only be one winner.
    Many big names have been shown the door at Old Trafford and Tevez is by no means up there with the best of them.

    He should have been mature and talked to SAF about his issues and then decided on whether he wanted to sign that contract or not.

    Another player putting money before medals.

  11. afromanc says:

    United to do the double over City this season, and Berba scores the winning goals…

    Fuck you carlos cuntface…By disrespecting our Club you have disrespected the fans who have stood so close by you…prick

  17. Costas says:

    Morning everybody! Tevez made a big difference coming of the bench in Rome didn’t he? I think Fergie can be held accountable for not bringing Berbatov into his main plans for that final. It would have been for Barca to get the ball away from him.

  18. ash says:

    Fuck off tevez.
    now i think d cousta should join utd.

  19. Micky says:

    It’s easy to mis-translate from another language.

    For example, “Of course I wanted to play, it’s the Champions League final. I was disappointed to be left out.”

    **Feeds it through the media machine**

    Comes out as “I should have played in the Champions League final. I’m very angry.”

    Not saying that HAS happened, but you never know.

  20. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    morning costa brother
    how are you
    i think we talk to much about tevez
    stick a fork in him hes done
    im just happy to see Mcclair on this site i think he is the single most over looked legend united have

  21. Costas says:

    Morning GHTT. Everything’s fine man. How are you? I love the video. Tevez looks very handsome in that video!

    Agreed about McClair. He has been a tropper for United for so many years now.

  22. Simmo says:

    Im Glad Tevez is gone!! Ok, he worked hard on the pitch but didn’t score enough goals! City deserve him!!

  23. willierednut says:

    hello ppl im fed up talking about tevez lets forget about em.

  24. King Eric says:

    Morning People. I like your phrase Gotta hate: “Stick a fork in him he is done”. You are also right about Choccy, very understated.

  25. Izzy says:

    I can’t wait till Tevez plays United. I hope the fans in the Old Trafford will give him one hell of a welcoming.


    HE is a classic example of a BITCH girlfriend….. BAbi pukimak kau lancau anak haram.

    to the old tevez tune –

    whose that cunt from argentina,
    whose that cunt that chose the door
    traded rooney to play with ched
    he’s a thick twat that tevez
    at old trafford your not welcome any more

    he’s a thick twat that tevez
    at old trafford your not welcome anymore

  28. Trevor says:

    Its like two twins!

    He was giving his all, Mr 110% when he played. He loved United, He loved the Fans.

    Then He turns into this fucking wanker!

    No one player is bigger than the team, & i could understand if you scored 25 goals a season.. But you dont!

    Your good but not that fucking good!
