Tevez snubs his Man City teammates as he names all-time XI
Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has snubbed his former teammates at Manchester City while naming his best XI.
The striker made headlines by ditching Manchester United for City but didn’t forget his teammates at Old Trafford when he named his Dream XI.
As reported by the Daily Star, Tevez picked seven former United teammates having been at the club between 2007 and 2009 after arriving from West Ham United on a loan deal.
“If I retired and had to put together a farewell match, my team would be: Gianluigi Buffon, Hugo Ibarra, Rio Ferdinand, Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra, Paul Scholes, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Wayne Rooney I’d stay on the bench,” he said.
Tevez played a key role in United’ club’s Champions League triumph in 2007/08 but decided to make the controversial switch to City in the coming season.
Tevez had struck up a spectacular partnership with Ronaldo and Rooney and it is no surprise that he picked Pogba with the duo having been teammates at Juventus.
Messi gets picked with the two having featured together for the Argentine national team and just as Pogba, the striker had spent his years with legendary goalkeeper Buffon at Juventus.
Tevez made 99 appearances for United, scoring 34 goals in the process and apart from City and Juventus, the striker who now features for Boca Juniors in his native Argentina had a spell in China with Shanghai Shenhua.
