Lionel Messi of Barcelona believes Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney form a partnership that scares defenders all around Europe.

One of the brightest attacking talents on the planet, Lionel Messi is someone who I reckon can make sound judgments on the capabilities of forwards. Ofcourse some patriotism comes into it with praising Carlos Tevez but it’s good to hear him acknowledging our players’ qualities.

‘Carlos is making a big difference for Manchester United this season.

‘His partnership with Rooney is already something special and I think it will only get better.

‘Although they play and move similarly to one another on the pitch, they are going to help Manchester United a lot. They will scare defenders everywhere.

‘Those who play the game well understand each other immediately. Good players always manage to play well together.

‘Barcelona and United are both great teams – and are real candidates for the Champions League.’


And he went on to add that Tevez, who famously has a band, is an excellent singer though the videos I saw of their products contradict this opinion. But these two up front are frightening for sure, and not just because of their unholy looks.
