Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United icon, has snubbed Cristiano Ronaldo in favor of Carlos Tevez as his all-time favorite Red Devils teammate.
Rooney, who is now the manager of Derby County, used to play with Ronaldo and Tevez, among other strikers, at Manchester United.
When asked by SPORTbible who his favourite player to play alongside was, Rooney, who did not mention Ronaldo, said: “Tevez. I just loved our connection.
“The two of us upfront, we complimented each other really well.
“Normally, if I played with Louis Saha, Ruud van Nistelrooy or Robin van Persie – these strikers were always the No.9 and I would play as a No.10.
“With Tevez, we could rotate, I would be the No.9, he’d take the No.9 spot and I would be No.10. When we lost the ball, we would be like two bulls trying to get it back.
“As a strike partner, he was the one I enjoyed playing with the most.”
Rooney linked up with Tevez from 2007 to 2009 after the Argentine signed on a two-year loan deal from West Ham.
