City legend Tueart, 61, today reveals his astonishment at Tevez's 'I hate Manchester' rant and asked: "What more does he want?"
He told the Daily Star Sunday: "He's on more money than anyone.
"They are now on a par with Manchester United. So what more does Tevez want?
"Manchester is the place to be for football - and Tevez should know that, having been at both clubs.
"What is happening in the city now reminds me of the 1970s, when I moved to Maine Road from Sunderland.
"One of the reasons I came to Manchester was because it was the place to be for football. It was then and it certainly is now.
"City and United were competing with each other for trophies and had exciting teams. Also in the North West equation were Liverpool, of course, and history is repeating itself when you look at what is happening there again since Kenny Dalglish returned as manager.
"What advantage would there be to Tevez in leaving this area at a time like this?"
