Carlos Tevez hopes to annoy Sir Alex Ferguson with Manchester City trophies

Carlos Tevez wants to “wind up” Sir Alex Ferguson in the best manner possible — by winning trophies for Manchester City.

As the most recent — and most high-profile — player to switch between the clubs, Tevez's name has been used both in official and unofficial capacities since the summer of 2009 as confirmation of City's growing influence and huge wealth.

The 26-year-old, a popular figure at Old Trafford before his departure, understands why this happens. But he would prefer City to concentrate their energies on ending that long trophy drought rather than continually bellowing the “Fergie, Fergie, sign him up” chant City fans use to bait their United counterparts in recognition of the Old Trafford demand for Tevez to remain.

“The thing that would wind up Sir Alex more than anything is for us to win something and really start achieving things,” Tevez said.

“It is not the song that needs to change; it's the attitude or mindset of our fans.

“Let's not be thinking about Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United, we need to think of City and what we can do.

“What we have got to do is not to devote any of our time to United and just focus on ourselves.”
