Barry: Tevez a big loss for City

The central midfielder mourns the departure of his former colleague but wishes the controversial Argentine good luck at his new club, Juventus, where he expects him to succeed
Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry says that he is sad to see Carlos Tevez depart for Juventus.

2/1 Man City are 2/1 with William Hill to win the Premier League
The 29-year-old completed his move to Turin on Wednesday for a fee beginning at €12 million, a transfer which brings to an end his four-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.

Tevez played a major role in City's rise to the top of English football in recent seasons, helping them to win the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League title in 2011-12.

"It will be a massive loss for Manchester City," Barry told Sky Sports.

"He has had a fantastic few years there and he has been fantastic to play alongside. To hear that news is quite sad but he will go and do a great job wherever he goes."

Tevez is City's top scorer in the Premier League era with 58 goals.
