Tevez has no plans to quit United

Carlos Tevez insists he is happy at Manchester United despite struggling to get in the starting line-up this season. The Argentinian striker was a key player in United's Champions League and Premier League double last season after moving from West Ham but Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov have been preferred to Tevez in recent weeks.

With Cristiano Ronaldo now fully fit as well, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he faces a difficult balancing act up front.

Tevez's two-year loan deal expires next summer and he is yet to sign a permanent contract, but he insists he is not thinking of leaving.

He told the Daily Mail: "This season is proving more complicated than any other and it is difficult for me to get in the team. The competition with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov is intense.

"This club have the most talented forward line in England and the manager has decided that we cannot all play in the team at the same time. I want to play more and the coach knows this.

"But I have no problem with him. We have spoken. There is no way I would want to leave this club. I insist I am calm.

"I have confidence in the coach and he has in me. In this sport it is necessary to be patient and I will be."
