Speaking to Fox Sports Latin America, Carlos Tevez has today revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson is the best manager he has played for, as well as former Argentina coach Marcelo Bielsa.

“I know Ferguson really doesn’t want to lose this title race,” said Tevez. “I think Ferguson and Bielsa are the best managers. I know Ferguson didn’t have the best relationship with me but together with Bielsa, those two are the best managers I had. Paul Scholes is the best professional. Him, Rooney and Giggs, I have no words. They were excellent to me.”

Tevez has repeatedly spoken of his desire to leave Manchester City but after no clubs met the asking price has been forced to stay put. Despite Mancini initially claiming Tevez would never play for the club again unless an apology was forthcoming, the manager has performed a U-turn this week. I wonder how willing Mancini will still be for Tevez to play for the club again following his snub in favour of Sir Alex.
