After the defeat against Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo told the press that their tactics were no good. Today, Carlos Tevez has echoed that opinion.

“I wanted to play in the starting line-up in Rome but that decision was down to the coach,” said Tevez. “But with a strategy more attacking in the first minute then perhaps the result would have been different. It has not been a good time for me because I believe that I should have played more minutes. My future will now be decided. My agents are negotiating and I am waiting to hear some news.”

Criticising Sir Alex Ferguson’s decisions in the press but there will still be fans who defend them no matter what.

Whether they are right or not is irrelevant. Since when has any player at our club thought it was appropriate to question the manager’s decisions? To do so is undermining and humiliating and should not be tolerated.
