Man Utd's Carlos Tevez wants to partner Wayne Rooney in attack against Celtic
Carlos Tevez believes he can strike up the perfect partnership at Manchester United alongside Wayne Rooney.




The Old Trafford striker has found himself lower down the Old Trafford pecking order this season than he would have liked, with £30.75 million summer signing Dimitar Berbatov Sir Alex Ferguson's favoured forward option.

Yet the diminutive Argentine is adamant that there is no better forward pairing at United than the Tevez-Rooney combination and believes he can complement Rooney's power and panache with his own array of South American skills.

Tevez, who will be hoping to further his case for a regular place in the starting line-up against Celtic in the Champions League tonight, said: "There was all this nonsense about how myself and Wayne couldn't play together but we showed everyone.

"We have a perfect, intuitive understanding on the pitch, plus we get on brilliantly as pals."

Tevez, who has made just four Premier League appearances for the Old Trafford outfit this term, revealed how he had improved his game by studying Rooney's own mesmeric movement.

The England international is enjoying a rich vein of form and set United on their way to a 4-0 victory with the opening goal against West Bromwich at the weekend.

"Give Wayne half a metre of space and he'll pull off amazing things, even when he has next to no space," Tevez said. "As soon as I played with him, I copied his movement and explosiveness away from defenders, as there is far less time or space when you play for United than I've ever experienced."

The chemistry that Rooney and Tevez conjured on the football field last season saw them notch a total of 37 goals between them. Tevez has one solitary strike to his name this season compared to Rooney's seven, but he remains confident of his position at Old Trafford. "Alex always had total belief in me and told me so. All I'd like is that I can be sure we [he and his family] are here for many years to come."

Tevez's chances of starting upfront in tonight's European encounter could be boosted by the news that Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be rested by Ferguson as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

With United lacking the Portuguese's attacking threat, it is feasible that Ferguson may deploy Tevez in a three-pronged attack alongside Rooney and Berbatov. Celtic, meanwhile, have their own injury concerns, with Georgios Samaras, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Chris Killen all out.


c'mon fergie ! unleash the pit bull twins ! !!!!!

let me tell you this much - since ronaldo has been losing a lot of possesion recently and obviously berbatov is the new fans' favourite i'd drop ronaldo for those 3 !!!!!



of course i'd drop berbatov but he has a lot of lovers on here so it has to be ronaldo - he is the least liked out of quartet

Ronaldo wants to play for Real Madrid. So, it is better to sell him. Berbatov will take his position. It will also be a chance for Tevez to be on the pitch. And we will also have a lot of money for other transfers :)

We desperately need good left winger / due to Giggsy retirement in the near future /
