Carlos Tevez claims he is now at the right club after joining Manchester Cityfrom Manchester United.

The Argentina forward has stoked up the rivalry between the clubs with hisbrace in the first leg of their Carling Cup semi-final clash at Eastlands lastweek and his subsequent spat with United captain Gary Neville.

City stepped in to sign Tevez in the summer when the Red Devils decided not toturn his loan deal into a permanent arrangement, and the 25-year-old insists hecould not be happier at how things have turned out. 

Home comfort: Carlos Tevez

Quoted in the Daily Mirror, Tevez said: 'The welcome I received from themoment I arrived at City has been very special. I was made to feel loved andthis means a lot to any footballer.

'I feel I've shown I'm at the right club now. Everyone knows how important thefans are at this club and, if I make them happy, it's an honour.

'I think the United fans know I tried hard. City is my club now, a place whereI feel part of everything. Maybe this wasn't always the way at United.'

Tevez gestured to Neville warming up on the sidelines after scoring his firstgoal of the match last week, indicating he felt the United skipper had spokenout of turn by saying Sir Alex Ferguson was right to let the South Americanleave Old Trafford.

Tevez then described Neville as 'an idiot' and a 'boot-licker' in anArgentinian radio interview, adding even more intrigue to tomorrow night'ssecond leg at Old Trafford.
