Robinho is backing AC Milan's push for Manchester City rebel Carlos Tevez. The Rossoneri face competition from Inter Milan for Robinho's former teammate.

"Tevez? I can guarantee him.

"I played with Carlos at City, he is great and can help us to win everything. He never caused problems: of course, there he always played ...," said Robinho.

He added: "Pato must stay here, he can win the Ballon d'Or!"
