Former Manchester United forward Carlos Tevez has named his ultimate eleven, and it interestingly features seven past and present players of the club.

The Argentine is one of the deadliest strikers United has ever had, and his performance in the 2007/2008 season will always go down as one of his best.

With 19 goals in 48 matches across all competitions, Tevez helped Man United win both the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League.

But he didn’t have the greatest of exits from Old Trafford, as he fell out with both the fans and then manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, after swapping United for Manchester City.

However, despite the falling out, Tevez appears to still have fond memories of his old club, as shown in his recent interview.

When asked to pick his ultimate eleven of players he’s played with in his career, the Argentine replied: “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].

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

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

“I’d stay on the bench.”

Interestingly, Tevez completely omits teammates from his time at Manchester City and West Ham, despite playing with the likes of Sergio Aguero.
