Current Juventus and Manchester United defender, Patrice Evra have revealed what he told Carlos Tevez when the Argentine joined arch rivals, Manchester City back in 2009.
It was one of the controversial transfer that has ever happened in Football considering that Carlos Tevez was actually a key player for Manchester United before his transfer to Manchester City which many believe to be involve with money.
“Carlos Tevez was my close friend. But I was not pleased when he joined Manchester City in 2009. I was really annoyed because he was a great player. There are two sides to every story, I understand that and football can be complicated.”
“But I didn’t like it when he was on the banner saying ‘Welcome to Manchester after he signed for City and I told him so ‘Carlito’ I said, what are you doing? This shirt isn’t you! I have been to your house and you still have a picture of yourself wearing a United shirt near your pool table! You are a Red. You know deep in your heart you are a Red.”
“We joked a little, we stayed close friends and Mr Ferguson didn’t always like that, especially when he saw us pictured outside a restaurant in newspaper. He didn’t want his players associating with those from City, who were becoming a much stronger team, but I am not just a footballer, I am a man who is loyal to his friend and Carlito is my friend.” Evra said.
