Bluevez: I Am Going To Fight Hard Every Day



Carlos Tevez met the world's media at Eastlands today. As Mark Hughes squad and options grow stronger by each summer week, it's clear we have a fighter in our ranks...

The kind of battling qualities allied to superb talent that won Tevez universal admiration at the swamp are exactly the forms of tenacity that City have lacked up front for years.

After unfortunately protracted calculations involving buying out murky third party ownership issues, the Argentinian hitman has signed for the Blues for 25 million.



Tevez aimed to set the rag record straight for starters, intriguingly countering some confused statements that have stumbked out of Stretford:

'Alex never called me or sent any text message. The only time I talked to him was after a Champions League match to discuss a situation about going to play for Argentina. It isn't the way to treat a player who has been at the club for two years. It seems there wasn't a line of communication.'

That lot out of the road, attention turned to the future with Manchester City:

'There is a great feeling of excitement around the club. Look at the quality of the players who have been signed and the prospect of other top-quality players coming, too. Things are happening at this club. The owners made it clear to me that they will be doing everything in their power to make this an extraordinary club to play for. I look forward to being part of that experience.'

'In every team you have to win the respect of your team-mates. I'm going to fight hard every day to become a regular member of the first team. It's the environment around me that was important in my decision, money was not a factor.'

Welcome to Planet Blue, Tev!

He looks much better in blue! Really pleased this deal is done and dusted, it means that we have a lot more attraction to other players considering our offer :-D

Argentina Sky blue and white City Sky blue and white ... no brainer wasn't it Carlo. Welcome to the academy of science and fine arts.

You wonder how big a part Zaba played in Tevez signing for City. It seems that once he left the rags he was only going to go to Eastlands.
Johnny Baguette
This signing is great in more ways than one. Tev is a proven star on the pitch and has a great work ethic. Tev's presence will also be a confidence boost for other players. It's good for Robinho as well as he isn't the main man anymore which means theres less pressure on him. I don't think its an exaggeration when I say this is the most important signing in the clubs history. With that in mind if Terry were to sign that would then top Tevs move. City's going from strength to strength. Exciting times.

This is a turning point I feel for city, because each time we get a world class player, more and more people get to know the name of manchester City. I have noticed recently that we are no longer being treated as though we are not a threat to one that is assembling a squad to challenge for honours.
