Man City rebel Tevez denies feud with Messi "the dwarf"

Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez insists he has no problem with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Tevez was responding to reports in Argentina that tension between the stars meant the pair were unlikely to be named in the same squad.

But the Manchester City striker said: "Here people say that it is either Tevez or Messi and it does not have to be like that, because I get on great with the dwarf.

"Those people are wrong, he is a kid who does not talk much and I do not like when people say that we do not get on. I have a good relationship with him."

He added on Fox Sports: "It is easy to play with him. How could it be any different? If he has the ball, he has three players marking him. He is the greatest."
