Tevez wants more of same at Man City

Carlos Tevez has joined Manchester City on the understanding that the club will continue to attract the world's best players. The Argentina striker has moved across Manchester from United to City on a five year deal for £25m.

"This is the chance to be involved from the start, an opportunity to help build a special experience," Tevez said ahead of his unveiling Tuesday.

"There is a great feeling of excitement around the club," Tevez said.

"Look at the quality of the players who have been signed and the prospect of other top-quality players coming, too. Things are happening at this club.

"The owners made it clear to me that they will be doing everything in their power to make this an extraordinary club to play for. I look forward to being part of that experience."

The 25-year-old Tevez hopes to help City to a first trophy since winning the League Cup in 1976.

"I hope to win many more trophies with City," he said. "This is a new adventure for me and I thank the people who have made this possible.

"My record of success speaks for itself. From helping West Ham to avoid relegation to helping Manchester United to two Champions League finals in two seasons. That's not a bad record."

"When I get the chance to play, I am confident that it can lead to goals, for me and for my team-mates. I am a team player who can score goals. I know my responsibilities," Tevez said. "Mark Hughes played in my position for some of the biggest clubs in the world and understands the demands and pressure of playing as a striker. I look forward to learning from him."

"Carlos is an international player of the highest class who possesses all the attributes that will help drive this club forward," Hughes said.

"He is not only outstanding technically but he is a reliable goal scorer and someone who will contribute fully to the team ethic. He gives us another exciting, attacking dimension."
