Gary Neville wasn’t best pleased with Carlos Tevez’s goal celebration where the Argie cupped his ears after scoring at Old Trafford. It appears as though there is no love lost between the pair with Neville looking forward to the impact of Owen now Tevez has departed (and is likely to join the bitters).
“He is at Manchester United because the gaffer believes he can score goals,” Neville said. “He is ideal now Carlos Tevez is gone. He has an opportunity to play at the highest level, at one of the biggest clubs in the world and of course, possibly regain his England place – but that will be at the discretion of the manager.”
