Juventus striker Tevez: Man Utd, Man City rivalry not so serious

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez insists there's no great rivalry between Manchester United and Manchester City.

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez insists there's no great rivalry between Manchester United and Manchester City.

Tevez left United for City in a controversial move, but insists the fallout was all water off a duck's back for him.

"I spent six years in Manchester and there, it did not matter I'd played for two different teams. It is not like Buenos Aires where it would be trouble for me if I said that playing for Boca or River was the same thing, or even here in Turin.

"I won a lot of trophies in the world, I was champion in Argentina, Brazil, England with both Manchester clubs. I've had more ups than downs and I accept the rules of the game: if you win you're a phenomenon, if you do not succeed you are criticised and sometimes the critics are right. "
