CARLOS TEVEZ has revealed that Wayne Rooney gifted him a Lamborghini while the pair were at Manchester United together.

Having seen his team-mate mocked for driving a club Audi, Wazza told Tevez to “take the Lamborghini”.

The duo enjoyed a close connection on and off the pitch when Tevez played at Old Trafford between 2007 and 2009.

And the Argentine told ESPN: “At Manchester United training, players would turn up with a Ferrari or a Lamborghini.

“Everyone, even the worst player, would have a Ferrari.

“I turned up in the Audi that the club gave you and they all bugged me about it, as if it was a Fiat 600.

“I spoke to Rooney and, the crazy guy that he is, he told me ‘take the Lamborghini’.

“I went, without registering, around Manchester with this car, he gave it to me.

“I identified a lot with him because of where he came from, a poor area of Liverpool.

“He always fought for the ball as if it were his last, the same way I played.

“I saw myself reflected in him.”


Together they won back-to-back Premier League titles, as well as the Champions League in 2008.

Tevez then controversially cruised across the city, ditching Old Trafford for The Etihad, signing for rivals Manchester City.

The 35-year-old now plays for boyhood club Boca Juniors, having turned out for Juventus and Shanghai Shenhua after leaving Manchester.
