Carlos Tevez in Praise of Manchester United Legend
Carlos Tevez scored Juventus’ opener in last night’s 2-1 UEFA Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund at the Juventus Stadium.
The tie is well-balanced for the return leg at Signal Iduna Park in three weeks’ time with the German Bundesliga side coming into form domestically.
Marco Reus had equalised for the visitors before Álvaro Morata scored just before half-time to give the Italian Serie A champions the lead going into the second leg.
Speaking after the game, the former Manchester United striker, Tevez, complimented currently playmaker Andrea Pirlo:
“It gives me pleasure to say I’ve played with Pirlo.”
But when asked who the best passer of the ball he has played with, he replied with a Manchester United legend:
Carlos Tevez played two seasons at Old Trafford with Paul Scholes between 2007-09 before a controversial move to United’s rivals Manchester City.
He is currently in his second season with the defending Serie A champions and current league leaders where he has scored 33 goals in 56 league appearances.
