Sir Alex Ferguson has turned the tables on Manchester City by accusing Roberto Mancini of desperation by bringing back Carlos Tevez.

City ambassador Patrick Vieira used the self-same jibe earlier in the week as he assessed the reasoning behind Paul Scholes' January retirement U-turn and when Ferguson saw former player Tevez return from six months in the wilderness in City's successful midweek comeback against Chelsea, the Scot felt it was time to go on the offensive.

"If it's desperation bringing back the best midfielder in Britain for the last 20 years then I think we can accept that," said Ferguson. "If you talk about desperation, they played a player the other night who refused to go on the pitch, the manager said he'd never play again and he takes a five-month holiday in Argentina. What is that? Could that come under the description of desperation?"
