Carlos Tevez praised his team-mates’ footballing and human qualities.

The Argentinian, signed from West Ham in the summer, started to show signs of great form for us, scoring vital goals against Chelsea and Wigan. His form is down to two factors: Sir Alex Ferguson and his teammates.

“The main difference between United and West Ham is that the coach believes in me at my new club,” he told The Sun.

“When I look around the dressing room and see my team-mates there, I realise I’m at one of the most important clubs in the world. That is a dream come true,” he said.

“The most surprising thing about the squad is even though all the players are stars, they are all actually really humble and are good people. They’ve made me feel good and I’ve now got various friends in the squad like Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.”


So he quickly got on with not the squad players but the key men in the side? Good to hear that, hopefully true. I said it before that the warning the lads delivered to Anderson is the sign of good team spirit, something that was evident and instrumental last season.

So far it seems the newcomers haven’t disrupted it which is pleasing to hear. Tevez himself is certainly prepared to work his socks off and always seems happy just to play for us. And boy, he already understands English!

“I understand the boss and my team-mates perfectly,’ he revealed.

Fergie’s accent posed serious difficulties for even those speaking native English so we must applaud Carlitos!
