In two seasons at Manchester United, Carlos Tevez won two league titles, the Champions League, the League Cup and the Club World Cup.

He then left for City, after United opted not to make his loan move permanent, spending four years there, winning one league title and one FA Cup. In his penultimate season he refused to play for City in September, then returned to Argentina for six months to play golf.

Tevez has today confirmed that he left United for City because we didn’t want him.

Nothing happened with [Sir Alex] Ferguson, it was a normal relationship. I went on loan to Manchester United for two seasons, and in the last year, Ferguson tells me they will pay the fee to keep me. We reached the Champions League final in Rome, and I had no contract on the table. Then I went to City and they complained, but I had no offer to sign for United, and I was free to leave.
