Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is happy to be rid of Carlos Tevez. Ferguson does not regret losing Tevez to local rivals Manchester City in 2009.

The Old Trafford chief said: "A deal could have been done for Tevez after his two-year loan if we had acted earlier.

"He is a man for the big game, there is no question about that. He is a big-game player.

"He did well in his season at West Ham. There was an easy solution because he was loaned to us and we paid the loan fee for that two years and then we had an option to buy him.

"But I was just a bit hesitant, I wasn't quite sure."
