Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says there was never any doubts at the club that Carlos Tevez would come good.

He said: "I listened to phone-ins and saw reports on TV and in the papers.

"People were saying they are this and that. But I think a lot of the people who were talking hadn't watched Tevez play properly.

"Intelligent players can always adapt their games to the players they are playing with - and that's what Carlos and Wayne have done."
