Neville accuses Man City hero Tevez of 'downing tools' at Man Utd

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has accused Carlos Tevez of "downing tools" in his final season at Old Trafford.

Tevez would eventually quit United for Manchester City.

“What annoyed me about Tevez was he downed tools in his second season," Neville told Sky Sports.

“Started sitting on the treatment bench, started coming out late for training. Started messing around.

“He was playing the club, and I couldn't stand that.

“Particularly as I was at the time, ferocious Man Utd person on the inside, never thought of anything else in my life, only United ever single day.

“And the idea that someone would come into that changing room and sort of not just be at their best."
