Manchester City have apologised for a “significant error of judgement” after Carlos Tevez was seen holding up a poster which read ‘RIP Fergie’ during the club’s Premier League victory parade on Monday.

The Argentine striker was handed the poster by a member of the the crowd during the celebrations and was pictured holding it above his head on Sky Sports News.

The sign could be a reference to Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s claim that his side would never be underdogs to City. “Not in my lifetime,” said the Scot.

A City spokesperson said: “The creation of the tasteless material is in itself reprehensible. In accepting and brandishing it, Carlos has made a significant error of judgement.

“The club wishes to express its sincerest apologies to Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United for any offence or distress caused.”
