Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has again hit out at Sir Alex Ferguson - suggesting the apology offered to the Manchester United boss on Monday evening was from his club rather than himself.

Tevez was shown to hold up a banner which read "RIP Fergie" during City's title parade at the start of the week, and that prompted a statement from Eastlands offering Sir Alex their "sincerest apologies".

But in an interview with Ole in Argentina, Tevez said: "It seems like Ferguson is the president of England.

"Every time he speaks badly about a player or says terrible things about me, nobody says that he has to apologise.

"[But] when someone comes out with a joke or banter, you have to say sorry - but I don't say sorry.''
