Carlos Tevez has again stoked the flames of rivalry between Manchester City and Manchester United by stating that he is now “at the right club”.
Tevez scored twice in the first leg of City’s Carling Cup semi-final clash at Eastlands last week but made the headlines for his subsequent row with United captain Gary Neville.
City stepped in to sign Tevez in the summer when United failed to agree terms on a permanent deal with the striker after offering the £25.5 million asking price.
While United fans have suggested that Tevez’s move was made because of the better money on offer at Eastlands, the Argentina forward has always maintained it was a case of City making him feel wanted.
“The welcome I received from the moment I arrived at City has been very special,” Tevez told the Daily Mirror. “I was made to feel loved and this means a lot to any footballer.
“I feel I’ve shown I’m at the right club now. Everyone knows how important the fans are at this club and, if I make them happy, it’s an honour. I think the United fans know I tried hard. City is my club now, a place where I feel part of everything. Maybe this wasn’t always the way at United.”
