Carlos Tevez unveiled as a Manchester City player
Carlos Tevez was officially unveiled as a Manchester City player this afternoon and said that it was the club's ambition rather than the huge wages which tempted him to swap Old Trafford for the City of Manchester Stadium.
"City's boss and owner came with a very good proposal," Tevez told reporters. "They showed me that City has the ambition to be one of the biggest clubs in the world. This made it easy to make the move. Money was never important."
The Argentina striker continued by launching yet another parting shot at Sir Alex Ferguson claiming that the Manchester United manager had never once called him during his two-seasons at Old Trafford.
"I was at United for two years, and Alex never called or sent any text message," Tevez said. "The only time Alex talked to me was after the match against Roma because Alex needed to talk about me playing for Argentina."
Tevez continued by saying that he had been shown a lack of respect by Ferguson and United before thanking the club's fans: "This is no way to treat a player who is at a club for two years. I want to thank Manchester United, David Gill, Alex Ferguson and the fanbase for two years there, but this is my new life and I am very happy to be with Manchester City."
With City reported to be close to signing Emmanuel Adebayor for £25m before the end of the week the club could have ten strikers in their first team squad.
