“I blame Fergie” read the headline in The Sun, in relation to the comments attributed to Carlos Tevez over his performances at United. The comments were fair enough. He claimed that he had lost some of his flair since coming to United, with their being more emphasis on working for the team than on allowing him to run the show with great individual. There wasn’t actually any mention of Sir Alex Ferguson, I must add.
It appears as though Tevez hasn’t actually been whinging about such things though, and is more than happy to do his bit for the team.
A spokesperson for the striker said the quotes were “totally untrue”. “Carlos has just told me that he loves playing in the English league and is very happy at Manchester United,” added the spokesperson said. “He is conscious only of helping the team to win and is not worried about where he plays on the pitch. Nor does he feel the Barclays Premier League has extra pressure. Carlos’s prime objective is to help the team and his team-mates to continue winning.”
