Manchester City's open-top bus tour to celebrate their thrilling Premier League victory was marred by Carlos Tevez's displaying of a highly provocative banner aimed at Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
"RIP Fergie" and "Didn't mean any disrespect" lmao what the hell Tevez, how could that be anymore disrespectful?! this dude really is a caveman! It's stupid but at the same time City should be able to do anything they want after that 44 year drought.
A while back, Ferguson was asked if United would ever go into a derby game as underdogs. His reply was "Not in my lifetime". So, the RIP Ferguson is a reference to that - suggesting that it has happened, and therefore Ferguson must have shuffled off his mortal coil. If it was a statement from nowhere, then yeah, it would be classless. But it's just a tongue-in-cheek reference to something Ferguson himself said.
Yeah I'm sure that's what Tevez meant.
City have apologised and understood how disrespectful this act was even if fans didn't. Well done City.
From what I understand, Fergie said something on the line of we would win over them"Over his dead body". The fact he said "NoDisrepect" takes any ill will out of it. IMO.....
Ohh I see. I think I remember reading that but I forgot all about it. I think he was just saying RIP Fergie. I'm pretty sure a lot of people forgot about it too if since they made such a big deal about it.
So after spending 6 months playing golf in Argentina, he just joined the parade to pick up his paycheck, right?
Yup, what a boss right? LOL
Well that was low of him. though no unexpected.
