Man Utd legend Keane tells Fergie he's wrong about Tevez

Manchester United legend Roy Keane says Sir Alex Ferguson is wrong to say Manchester City have shown 'desperation' in calling back Carlos Tevez.

Keane wrote in his column for the Sunday Sun: "Manchester United have more to lose than City do with Tevez coming back because Ferguson will know full well that he is the sort of player who can turn tight games in his side's favour If he wasn't worried about City, would he even be talking about them?

"Already, we have seen how Tevez set up the winner for Samir Nasri in City's 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday at a time when they needed a spark.

"You don't cut off your nose to spite your face and when you've a good player like Tevez you'd be crazy not to use him.

"OK, Roberto Mancini had to be careful not to lose face in a situation where he had said Tevez would never play for the club again after he had refused to go on as a substitute.

"But once Tevez apologised why wouldn't you bring him back? Ferguson is wrong, it's not desperation, just common sense."
