Please Be Quiet Now Carlos

Speaking with TyC television network, Carlos Tevez gave an interview to explain his decision to leave Manchester United.

“I am not sure where I am going to play, but I know for sure that will not be at Manchester,” he said. “When I arrived I had to fight for a place like any other player. My first season was good. I was a starter or a substitute, but I respected that. But in my second year, after the match against Liverpool, the coach started to overlook me. The fans supported me a lot so I thought that something was going on as my performances were also good. I was a professional. I did not feel supported after they signed Berbatov, because I was the man for the job he was bought to do. Last year I was the second top-scorer after Cristiano. We won two titles and being shut out like this was something that I could not understand. They did not ask me to sign the contract. Ferguson told me not be worried about Berbatov’s arrival, but I did not like it when he started to put me on the bench often. I gave my life for the Manchester United shirt.”

  1. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Costa ive never been so happy for someone, whos not me, to go watch united since my younger brother lead out the united team in 96 in a pre season friendly over here in ireland

  2. theboogeyman says:

    Well done,Costa!!Hope you enjoy it!

  3. Gudjohnsen says:

    It’s nice to see someone choosing United over Real. Valencia is a class act and the price is good, I reckon 16 mills is fair. I think Wigan should also get some respect, they are respecting Valencia’s wishes and letting him go to Old Trafford instead of Madrid for perhaps a slightly less amount than the fascists were willing to pay.

    Will Sir Alex give him the number 7 or is that number reserved for someone else? The next two weeks will be exciting…

    About the Brazil rumors, I’m not sure about Nilmar. I hope it’s not him we’re after.

  4. Costas says:

    Thanks GHTT and Boogeyman.At this point i don’t even care if Fergie plays Chester and Eckersley against them. It’s an once in a lifetime experience. I will be at the North stand,close to the pitch. Don’t remember the specific details now.

  5. Kevin says:

    I like Fabiano he is quality and could fit in well with Rooney or Berba playing in behind him. I don’t like the idea of Nilmar at all and do not rate him highly. We will see but it seems strange we would not have heard anything by now about it. I like Valencia and think he will do well at OT. Congrats Costa.

  6. Corea says:

    Costas, you are the man! ;)
    I’m envious. Hope nothing would stay on your way to OT that day.

  7. Costas says:

    I hope so too Corea.I am just waiting for the tickets to be sent to my house.It came out of nowhere really.

  8. Corea says:

    Some photos and report needed after the trip on email ;)

  9. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    love a Costas standing beside Chester and Eckersley photo

  10. AliK says:

    Rooney deserves no.7 . I hope he gets it.

  11. vishnu1729 says:

    Sir Alex will surely be reserving the famous no 7 manu shirt to……………………..ADEM LADJJIC………………
    It will be the final answer to the world and ronaldo

  12. vishnu1729 says:

    if we want to sign a player of a scholes type under 10 m..the best player to sign will be deco..i dont think many of us would agree with is..but in reality it will help us to add experience and will be a better cover gor giggs and scholes…
    we can easily get him as he wishes to leave chelsea..and he will have no regrets to join their rivals manu..because chelsi was not loyal to him…
    …the player is so cheap..
    …less injury prone..
    ….add experince..
    …might work so well…no one can predict.

  13. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    vishnu1729 man u are some soccer team david beekham used to play for
    manchester uninted/united/man united are the 18 time ,twice 3 in a row , champions of england first english team to win the european cup, first of 3

    i dont know too much more about man u

  14. gotta hate tiny tears says:

    vishnu1729 :) love for you

  15. Stephen says:

    Deco are you sure mate??? The best signing we could make in midfield would be to go for Arteta, he is 27, has premiership experience and a class act.

  16. RJ says:

    I demand new news!

  17. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Relax no news is good rj and noone has the right to demand anything off Scott

  18. RJ says:

    I know, I was only joking.
    However it looks like shitty have definately signed smet’o for 25mil.

  19. PrahaladtheUtdFan says:

    Hey, the Mirror apparently says we have Valencia is having a medical for 14 m pounds sometime this week. I hope Fergie signs another winger and striker apart from him.

  20. PrahaladtheUtdFan says:

    Oops, sorry guys didnt see the above comments, seemed to be too many. Guess you already knew

  21. Besty 07 says:

    Sky sports also saying he is in Manchester having a medical

  22. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Ha ha ha I hope eto’o does sign robinho Santa Cruz and etooooooo tevez would of got more games at united. Ha ha ha what a prick

  23. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    Sly sports? The mirror? Don’t mind any of them gotta hate tiny tears told you’d a week ago todays the day

  24. Besty 07 says:

    Sorry mate new on here i will keep a look out for ur predictions, who`s next?

  25. Dan says:

    Can’t believe no one has put in any bids for Benzema.

    Valencia is pretty much a done deal and Eto to City is shit.

    However, I would like to see David Villa at United so can someone please make it happen!

  26. RJ says:

    Benzema wants to go to real though apparantly.

  27. King Eric says:

    Morning Costas, Corea, Gotta hate and everyone. Good news Costas, bet you can’t wait mate.

    Dan – We will NOT be buying Villa mate.

  28. King Eric says:

    PS – Have you all seen Rooneys comments? That is exactly the sort of player we love at United!

  29. Gudjohnsen says:

    Ha ha Tevez going to City to get more games??! He has to fight for his place there too, Santa Cruz, Eto…and they already have Benjani, Vassell and Bellamy, they must let someone go. They are talking about giving Eto 250 thousand pounds each week, that’s just crazy!!

    But anyways, I think the Valencia deal will go through this week. Hopefully we can outbid the fascist on Benzema. But I’m not so optimistic about that, we might bid the same amount as they do, both bids accepted and then Benzema will have to choose. He’s already said he fancies Real and with Zidane as one of the staff members over there it will not take much to lure him to Madrid.

    If we need a cheap creative attacking midfielder/forward we can always snatch up Eidur Gudjohnsen at Barcelona, 4-5 million pounds :þ

  30. RJ says:

    I think the morale of the story is, never trust anything that comes out of Argentinia.

  31. theboogeyman says:

    @King Eric:Rooney=Legend

  32. Stephen says:

    Gudjohnsen, I can’t see the point of your name sake, signing him would solve nothing, for me he is an off striker not a midfielder I would rather sign a specialist midfielder rather than a jack of all, master of none.

  33. theboogeyman says:

    Guys,I have a question.2,actually.
    1.Is the 99 Champions League final shirt available at the Megastore?
    2.If it is,will they print your name on it in the old font?

    Sorry for the off topic comment and thanks in advance! :)

  34. Stephen says:

    I believe it is mate, look online.

  35. theboogeyman says:

    Just checked.It’s there,but it doesn’t say anything about printing names.Thank you very much!!

  36. willierednut says:

    Hello ppl has scott retired.

  37. Costas says:

    Morning King Eric. Best news of my life. Can’t wait! I will spend one week in England but that’s the one day i am looking forward to.

    I onder who’s next after Valencia. Will Fergie opt to boost his midfield more? I think that in the end, 16 million will be a good piece of business.64 million left.

  38. Gudjohnsen says:

    @Stephen – I was merely just mentioning this since someone mentioned signing Deco would be a cheap move, that’s why I put a smiley face at the end of the sentence. I agree, I don’t think we would have any room for Eidur, his best position is to play behind a striker and he’s turning 31 in September. But I do hope my countryman goes to England again, he is a good player and it’s a shame to see him sitting on the bench all the time at Barca. He needs a team where he can play every week, I hope he signs for West Ham and plays for his friend Zola. Fergie was close to buying Eidur from Bolton in 2000 but Chelsea got him first.

  39. Stephen says:

    He should be playing regular footy mate, he is still a good player.

  40. Macheda is GOD says:

    Just had to say that

    Oh ya whinny little bitch … Just shut the hell up already will ya!
