Carlos Tevez became public enemy number one with Manchester United fans when he swapped Old Trafford for The Etihad and signed for Manchester City.

However, it seems the Argentine still holds good memories from his time with the Red Devils.

Speaking last year, Tevez was asked to name his ultimate line-up made entirely of players he's played alongside.

Considering he's had spells at West Ham, Juventus, Corinthians, Boca Juniors, Manchester United and Manchester City, he had got a lot of talent to pick from.

But even so, he picked six players who he played alongside at United, and failed to name any City players.

Despite winning the Premier League at City, he preferred his team-mates from his spell in the red half of Manchester.

Tevez named Rio Ferdinand, Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, all of whom he played alongside at United.

He also picked a few Juventus stars, including Paul Pogba – who he missed out on playing with at Old Trafford by just a couple of years.

    The six-time Ballon d'Or winner played alongside Tevez on numerous occasions for the Argentine national team.

    When picking his team, Tevez joked that he wouldn't put himself in the side.

    "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," he said.

    "I’d stay on the bench."

    Tevez is still currently playing for Boca Juniors at the age of 37, but his contract is set to expire this summer.
