Manchester City's Carlos Tevez was under a 24 hour armed guard last night after his 'RIP Fergie' prank sparked fury among hardcore Manchester United fans.
The controversial Manchester City star went underground after he was caught live on TV holding up a poster bearing a tombstone which said 'RIP Fergie', that he managed to get from a City fan, during his club's open-top bus victory tour on Monday.
Although Manchester City bosses apologized swiftly for Tevez's action, United fans swarmed the internet with online abuses against the soccer star.
The Argentinean's home address was displayed on the internet, sparking fears of an attack by a notorious hooligan gang called Men In Black.
According to The Sun, DaveMUFC19 was one of many fans who tweeted the player's home address before branding him a "c***", while another mocked at him saying, "Feel sorry for (him) now, everyone has his address. He's gonna die. He's gonna die. Carlos Tevez is gonna die."
Even former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan, 37, expressed his distaste, saying, "Disgrace from Tevez. Total lack of respect. Lose with class, but most important is to win with class."
Striker Tevez, 28, was last night believed to have fled his mansion as other stars slammed his sick antics during Monday night's parade through Manchester, held to celebrate City first league win after 44 years.
