Fergie blasts 'small club' City

26 Jul 2009 - 10:20:37

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has branded rivals Manchester City as 'a small club with a small mentality', despite their massive summer spending spree.

Ferguson was responding to the news that the Citizens had put up a large billboard in the city to welcome striker Carlos Tevez, who has left Old Trafford to join the City revolution.

"It's City isn't it?" said Ferguson. "They are a small club with a small mentality.

"All they can talk about is Manchester United - they can't get away from it.

"They think taking Carlos Tevez away from Manchester United is a triumph. It is poor stuff."

Ferguson also suggested that striker Emmanuel Adebayor has contacted United over a move just after he had agreed to join City from Arsenal in a £25million deal.

The veteran Scot added: "At the last minute, from what I can gather, either Emmanuel Adebayor or his agent phoned us after they had agreed a deal with City and then did the same with Chelsea.

"He was desperate to get to either Chelsea or us."
