London: Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez has claimed he was driven away from Manchester United by a lack of respect being shown to him by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Argentine`s future was subject to speculation throughout the summer, and he finally joined the Red Devils` inner city rivals in mid-July.
Tevez said that, despite enjoying his first year with the English champions, he had grown increasingly disillusioned in his second year at the club.
"I think I deserved more respect than what was shown," Tevez told a magazine.
"It was very strange. In the first year everything went very well - I was part of the team and felt like I was important to the coach and the club," he added.
The Citizen said he began to felt unwanted during his second year with the club and knew that he would inevitably leave Manchester United in the summer.
"In the second [year], there was a big change," said Tevez. "There was no communication with the manager and I began to feel as if I was not wanted.”
"Every footballer will say that if they do not feel wanted, then it is the beginning of the end."
