Carlos Tevez sacrifices his own spot in a dream team starting 11 as he gives his spot to Lionel Messi.

Seven of Carlos Tevez’s all-star 11 have Manchester United connections.

The front line sees a Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Wayne Rooney trident in an all-out attack-minded team.

Carlos Tevez enjoyed two trophy-laden seasons at Manchester United.

The Argentine striker enjoyed a fantastic trio with Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. The three formed one of the most terrifying attacking tridents of their footballing generation.

Even though Tevez left Old Trafford under somewhat of a cloud. Then did the unthinkable and joined noisy neighbors Manchester City.

He clearly has some deep affection for the club when he named his dream team.

Speaking to Radio La Red the Boca Juniors forward didn’t even have room for himself in the starting eleven.

But in a team clearly geared towards scoring plenty of goals, he found room for no less than seven players who have Red Devils connection.

Three of his back four all United players, two of his midfield three again United players. As for his front three, all but one were at United.

The 2008 Champions League winner sacrificed his own spot to accommodate compatriot, Lionel Messi.

He said:

“If I retired and had to put together a farewell match, my team would be: Gianluigi Buffon, Hugo Ibarra, Rio Ferdinand, Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra, Paul Scholes, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Wayne Rooney.”

“I’d stay on the bench.”

Tevez, Rooney, and Ronaldo are definitely ranked as one of the best trios in Premier League history.
