Carlos Tevez has said Wayne Rooney gave him a Lamborghini while at Manchester United after fellow teammates made fun of his car.
The former Argentina international joined United from West Ham in 2007, where he had been involved in a dramatic battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Before then, he had played in Argentina and Brazil, but said he soon realised that the culture at United was on a different scale.
“At West Ham, we saved ourselves from relegation on the final day of the season with a victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford,” he told ESPN Argentina. “It wasn’t the same at Manchester United as at Boca.
I missed at penalty at Boca and they killed me, this didn’t happen at United.
“Even the worst player came with a Ferrari. I was there with an Audi which the club had given me and they all laughed at me.
“‘Take the Lamborghini,’ Rooney told me. I went to find it at his house and he let me keep it for 10 days.”
Tevez also said he felt he had a lot in common with Rooney given their backgrounds, while he also had special words for Paul Scholes.
“I identified a lot with Rooney,” he added. “He came from a poor area in Liverpool and always fought for the ball as if it were the last.
“Scholes was one of the best I players I’ve seen. That shot he had.”
Tevez spent two seasons at United and won two Premier League titles, a League Cup, a Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup before leaving to join rivals Manchester City in 2009.
