'One of the most disappointing signings of my career. When I signed him there was something about him I didn’t like '
'(He) was blessed with great cunning: a shrewdness that was borderline Machiavellian. He had a touch of evil.'
'He was such a brilliant long passer that he could choose a hair on the head of any team-mate answering the call of nature at our training ground.'
'Taking (Tevez) back showed desperation. In terms of his prestige as a manager, he let himself down.'
'He can debilitate the most confident person in the world in seconds. He was an intimidating, ferocious individual.'
'(He) had more regard for defending and destroying a game than winning it.'
'His life expanded in more directions than we were happy with.'
'(He) was the most gifted player I managed. He surpassed all the other great ones I coached at United - and I had many.'
'(He) was the only player I managed who chose to be famous, who made it his mission to be known outside the game.'
'He's a likeable person when you get to know him, and he can laugh at himself, turn a joke back on himself.'
'(He) was a terrible professional. We played down at Wimbledon and he was tucking into everything: sandwiches, soups, steaks. He was going through the menu.’
'I didn't think of him as an elite international footballer.'
'The other players were telling him: 'Behave yourself.' But that was the end of him. I knew we would never get him back.'
'Few of the signings made in his time haunted me at night.'
