Man United Legends Still Upset By Tevez Defection

Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs felt betrayed by Carlos Tevez when he quit for Manchester City.
The pair were discussing the 2009 derby on Sky Sports.
Neville recalled: "What were your thoughts on him leaving? I didn't take it too well really.

"I always thought it was an insult, a player asking to leave Manchester United, particularly to go to a club in our country. 

"I had a bit of sympathy if it was a Real or a Barca, but to go to our rivals, a team trying to get to where we were, I didn't take it particularly well."
Giggs admits he couldn't understand why Tevez chose to leave. He said:
"I liked Carlos. He was a good team-mate, and obviously a good player. 

"I'm slightly different whereby I cannot understand any player leaving United. I just don't get it.

"So when it's your rivals - Liverpool, City - it just shouldn't happen. 

"Especially if they're at the peak of their career and still young enough. 

"No, it wasn't great, and I think there's a little bit that makes you try that little bit harder when you're playing against those players."
