In one of the most stunning, not to mention, bizarre turns in the world of football, Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez announced that he was quitting Manchester City and going back to Manchester United.
Tevez left United fans incensed when he left the club following a concerted and vociferous fan campaign to get him to stay, adding to the animosity when he was promoted as 'the face of Manchester.'
Tevez appeared to blame the manager, Sir Alex Ferguson for his departure, claiming that he didn't feel loved, wanted, or needed at Old Trafford.
Since his move to the COMS Tevez has proven to be a big hit in the blue half of the city, delighting the fans with his industrious endeavours - including an impressive goal tally - and for providing a touch of oneupmanship against their rivals, who described City as 'noisy neighbours.'
But it seems that Tevez's love affair with City is proving to be little more than a brief fling. Speaking through an interpreter, Tevez told us:
"I want to go back to United. It's closer to my house, and they make better tea and bacon sandwiches. Also the United boys are happy. At City we have to put up with Wayne Bridge sulking all of the time. He is good boy but very down right now over the bastard Terry and the child support payments. You don't get that at United. You get Dimi Berbatov playing practical jokes all the time, like putting poisonous snakes in your boots and laughing his head off like a lunatic. And you get Wazza doing his comedy impressions and making the funny voices like Steven Gerrard. I like United better. I think I go back."
United fan Jarbo The Killer thinks not. He told us:
"If Tevez thinks he's coming back here, he's wrong. And if he does, we'll make his life hell. We'll pelt him with rotten eggs. Or something similar."
More as we get it.
