Maradona backing Tevez's Man Utd to defeat Chelsea

Diego Maradona is backing Manchester United in tonight's Champions League final against Chelsea because of Carlos Tevez.

The former Argentina great admitted he will turn into a United fan for one day because he wants Tevez to win the Champions League in Moscow.

Speaking in Cannes, where Maradona is promoting the film 'Maradona' by the Bosnian director Emir Kusturica, he said: "I think Manchester will beat Chelsea. My friend Carlitos (Tevez) plays there.

"I think Manchester win tomorrow, even though I have quite a lot of friends in several teams."
