Attitude and unprofessional issues aside over the course of their careers Tevez was the better of the two no doubt. Just as a player i would have opted for Tevez too but Tevez is Tevez and he just wasn't so good that the hassle that comes with him would have been worth it.Oh I definitely agree, the divide in the groups was based on ability and I feel Tevez was more talented than the strikers I have put in Tier 2. Maybe he was somewhere between 1 and 2.
I liked Tevez a lot (still it was clear that he received much more money from City which we were right not to give him).
In 2007/08 he was a great player and at the same time very committed, the following year he was a different player and he didn’t turn back to a permanent hardworking professional player at City either. Preferred playing golf in Argentina than playing for them.
However if he didn’t have the contract issue with us I would have kept him and not signed Berbatov.
