Carlos Tevez: I wanted Rooney to join City

Carlos Tevez: I wanted Rooney to join
Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has admitted that he wished Wayne Rooney had followed him to the Eastlands ahead of the Manchester derby, Rooney contract talks broke down last month when the striker said he wanted to leave Old Trafford citing the lack of ambition at the club. City were heavily linked to move for Rooney. But Wayne signed a five year contract after meeting with manager Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill.

Carlos Tevez said, "Wayne is a player of great quality. He was a team-mate and a friend of mine at United and he's one of those men that is better to have on your team than against you.

"For me he is the best English striker of recent years. I would have liked him to come here, of course. But it was complicated for him to leave United. So we have to concentrate on our own game."

Tevez joined United's bitter rivals in the summer our 2009 and has never looked back since, becoming a fans favourite at City" Best Blogger Tips
