London, Jan 21 (ANI): Ace striker Carlos Tevez has accused his former Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville of showing disrespect towards him.

Tevez set the record straight why he goaded Neville after scoring both goals in Manchester City's dramatic 2-1 Carling Cup win on Tuesday night over their neighbours.

The Argentinian was furious after Neville claimed United were right not to shell out 25 million pounds to keep him at Old Trafford, The Sun reports.

Tevez made his feelings clear when he celebrated his first goal near Neville, who in turn responded with an obscene one-fingered gesture.

"Gary Neville was disrespectful to me. It is wrong for one professional to criticise another in the way he did when he did not know the full facts. I was not trying to be offensive to him when I celebrated, I was just trying to make a point to him," Tevez said.

"I felt in my two years at Old Trafford I earned the respect of the management and players for what I achieved. I won five trophies and was the club's second top scorer.

"I do not believe I have deserved some of the comments that have come out since. If they want to have a dig at me, I will enjoy scoring a goal against them," he added. (ANI)
