Carlos Tevez has confirmed that he won't be a Manchester United player next season accusing the newly crowned Premier League champions of showing him a lack of respect.
The Argentina striker's future at the club has been the subject of constant media speculation over the last few months with United appearing reluctant to offer Tevez a permanent contract following a two-year loan deal.
Speaking to Argentinian TV station TYC, Tevez said: "I know that I am not going to continue at Manchester United. I feel that they have lacked respect towards me. It's not about whether they pay £5m more or £5 less, but I feel I have been badly treated."
"There are ways in which the club is managed that I don't understand. When you don't agree with the manager in how the club is run ... I don't have faith in a lot of things that happen here. I've been here for two years and the directors have never come to speak to me. Not once have I had a meeting with them."
"Therefore, it's best that I leave the club so as not to clash with [the manager] Alex Ferguson and the directors. Neither do I understand why I don't play in the team. I've asked [my adviser] Kia [Joorabchian] not to speak to me about offers during the next 10 days. I want to concentrate only on the final matches that we have to play. Afterwards, I've got a month to take a decision and choose where to go."
Tevez waved a tearful goodbye to the Manchester United faithful following the 0-0 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Saturday.
