Fergie hits back

KUALA LUMPUR: Sir Alex Ferguson hit back at Carlos Tevez, saying the Argentinian striker wasn’t worth the £25 million that Manchester City paid for him, reports said on Tuesday. The 25-year-old international signed a five-year contract with City after his two-year deal at United ran out at the end of last season. Tevez has claimed Ferguson never got in touch to try to persuade him to stay. But Ferguson told English dailies in Kuala Lumpur, where United are on an Asian tour, that this was not true. “We made contact with Carlos. We sent him texts and spoke to him when he was in Argentina,” he said. — AFP
