Sir Alex Ferguson Is More Afraid Of Manchester City Than He Admits – Carlos Tevez

7478578 Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has had another dig at his former employers by insisting that manager Sir Alex Ferguson will not admit how much he fears the Citizens.

The Sky Blues’ summer spending has created a formidable squad at Eastlands, a squad which the Argentine believes is spreading fear throughout the Premier League.

Speaking to the Sunday People, Tevez insisted that Ferguson calling City a “small time club” was dangerous and that the club would prove why on the pitch in the Manchester derby.

“That Ferguson criticises City is dangerous for him and his objectives this year,” explained the striker.

“Perhaps he is more afraid of us than he lets on and he is trying to break our concentration. The answer will come on the pitch in the first derby game in September.”

Tevez also insisted that he preferred Mark Hughes’ management style to Ferguson’s and that he was excited about the new season.

“Ferguson is history in my career. Mark Hughes just concentrates on working and training, not getting involved in the business of other club,” said the Argentine.

“Hughes is closer to the players than Ferguson and he talks some Spanish, which is good for me.

“He has been a player and you notice that in how he treats the players. My evaluation of him is positive and I’m excited about the season ahead.”

The 25-year-old also admitted he did not fear competition for places at City and said that he was convinced his new club could challenge for the title.

“We have a lot of strikers at City but that happens at Manchester United as well and at other clubs,” he added.

“It is a long season in England and there has to be room for everyone.

“We have started the season well but know that what counts is how the season ends – that is how we will be judged.

“There will be a lot of candidates for the title – and City are among them.”
