CARLOS Tevez was out to prove Gary Neville wrong.

That's according to Manchester City team-mate and fellow Argentinian Pablo Zabaleta, after Tevez scored twice against former club Manchester United in the Carling Cup last night.

Long-serving United defender Neville had suggested manager Sir Alex Ferguson was right to move the striker on in the summer, but

Tevez took exception to the remarks and responded with both goals in the 2-1 semi-final first leg victory at Eastlands.

After he had drilled home the penalty that pulled his side level Tevez spotted Neville warming up on the touchline - he indicated the full-back should keep his mouth shut.

The response was one fingered, which just drew more 'shut it' taunts from Tevez, who has now scored 17 goals this season.

The gesture could also land Neville in hot water with the FA.

Zabaleta said: "One Manchester United player talked about Carlos before the game so he showed he is top class, a top player.

“He is amazing, everyone knows Carlos is a great player. Everyone loves him. This was a special game for him, one he has been dreaming about.”
