Carlos Tevez names seven Man Utd stars but no Man City players in ultimate XI

Carlos Tevez should be remembered fondly at Old Trafford after a two-year period where he won two Premier League titles and the Champions League.

The Argentine forward formed one of the most devastating attacking trios English football has ever seen alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.

But after committing the cardinal sin in the eyes of supporters by joining cross-city rivals Manchester City in 2009, there will always be bitterness towards Tevez from the United fanbase.

Anyhow, Tevez enjoyed playing in a star-studded line-up that was arguably the best team Sir Alex Ferguson ever built during his 26-year tenure.

And when asked to name an ultimate team made up of players he’s been teammates with, United unsurprisingly dominates.

“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 [in defence],” he said, as quoted by the Mirror. 

“Paul Scholes, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba [in midfield].

“Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Wayne Rooney [in attack].

“I’d stay on the bench.”

Tevez played alongside Paul Pogba during his two years at Juventus, hence the Frenchman’s inclusion.

It is notable that seven past and present United players have been selected in Tevez’s team, but no Manchester City players despite a four-year period at the Etihad Stadium where he played with the likes of Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany.
