Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has reopened his verbal duel with Sir Alex Ferguson, by saying that he has no intention of apologizing to the 70-year-old over the sign he disgracefully held up during his side’s trophy parade.
During the celebrations, a sign reading “R.I.P. Fergie” was thrown at the team bus and Tevez held it up. Although City issued a full and formal apology to their neighbors, but Tevez insists he does not regret his actions, despite previously releasing a statement saying he got “carried away in the excitement of the moment” and did not mean any disrespect to his former United boss. The former Manchester United man arrived in Argentina for the summer break and told the reporters:
“It seems like Ferguson is the president of England. Every time he speaks badly about a player or says terrible things about me, nobody says that he has to apologise. But when someone comes out with a joke or banter, you have to apologise – but I won’t apologise. There’s no relationship at all between me and Ferguson.”
Recalling the match against QPR, which ironically was decided in ‘Fergie Time’, the Argentine international said:
“I was in the changing room, I already thought it was over then Dzeko scored, I stayed put and then Kun scored and madness broke out.”
“For now I am relaxing with my family and we will see what happens in future.”
