Tevez slams United treatment

Published Add your comment

Carlos Tevez has accused Manchester United of showing him a lack of respect and confirmed he will not play for the new Barclays Premier League champions next season.

The striker's future has become a hot topic, with United fans urging the club to keep the Argentinian following the end of his two-year loan spell this summer, but a deal has so far not been agreed, with Tevez also unhappy at the amount of time he has spent on the bench this season.

The 25-year-old told Argentinian TV station TYC: "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 £5million more or £5million less, but I feel I have been badly treated."

He added: "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 (manager) Alex Ferguson and the directors. Neither do I understand why I don't play in the team.

"I've asked (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 was tearful as he waved to the fans after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Arsenal, which sealed a third successive Premier League triumph.

"It's emotional," he said. "I like Manchester and I like the fans. But maybe it is goodbye. It is very difficult."
