We're not happy

Carlos Tevez should probably learn to keep his mouth shut. This year alone he’s already stuck his nose into the personal lives of Wayne Bridge and John Terry – claiming that the former England captain would be dead in his town, as though he were a wild west sheriff – and slagged off his former captain Gary Neville for being a ‘boot licker’. Now he’s decided it would be a good idea to have a go at his own manager, Roberto Mancini, saying his training methods are all wrong, and his club, who he has given a rocket for the famous ‘Welcome to Manchester’ poster. Put a sock in it already, eh?

‘The players are not happy with this (the training),’ Tevez said, despite being told by City to not to talk to the media. ‘We are at the end of a long season, we have big matches, we are tired but there are still double training sessions, morning and afternoon. Then, the next day, we train for two hours. I do not understand. But, please, he is the coach and I am the player. He is in charge. I am OK with him.

‘I never understood the intention of that poster. What was the point? Was it to welcome me to Manchester City or was it to anger Manchester United? Nobody ever told me. I'm indifferent towards it but it is important you know I had nothing to do with the poster. I'd have preferred for it not to be there. I have respect for all the clubs I used to play for. That was not showing respect, was it? I did not transfer from United to City for the controversy.’
