Tevez: Ronaldo doesn't make me dream like Rooney & Messi

The Argentine admits the Real Madrid forward would not feature in his fantasy attacking front line and says he has learned how to behave during his time in the Premier League
Carlos Tevez says Wayne Rooney and Lionel Messi would feature in his fantasy attacking front line but admits there would be no room for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Argentine, who has completed a move from Manchester City to Juventus, featured alongside both Rooney and Ronaldo during his time at Manchester United but concedes the Portugal international's playing style does not make him 'dream'.

"My ideal trident would be me with Rooney and Messi," Tevez told Tuttosport.

"They are the players who make me dream - not Ronaldo."

Tevez's four-year spell at Manchester City was marred by a spat with then manager Roberto Mancini after the forward refused to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich in a Champions League group game in September 2011.

The dispute resulted in Tevez returning to Argentina and enduring a first-team hiatus which lasted nearly six months but the 29-year-old claims the severity of the incident was heightened by a row between Mancini and Edin Dzeko.

"On television, it seemed worse than it was," Tevez explained. "When the coach decided to remove [Edin] Dzeko and put on a defender I went back to the bench disappointed.

"But the one who was really angry was Dzeko, who started to insult Mancini in Bosnian, with Mancini answering him in Italian - it was a surreal scene.

"I was fine talking with [Pablo] Zabaleta but when Mancini turned, he saw me sitting down and was furious, but only because he was furious after the row with Dzeko.

"At the beginning of my career in England, I was a hothead. If the coach replaced me, I cursed and insulted him. Now I'm not like this; I have learned how to behave."
