Tevez: I can play with Man Utd's Rooney

Carlos Tevez says he and Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney can play together.

Tevez will replace the injured Rooney for tomorrow's match at Portsmouth and said: "The best players should play with each other; great players need to play next to each other. It's a big blow to lose Wayne now; he's a great player and will be difficult to replace but my aim is to help this team like I helped West Ham.

"It hurt to leave West Ham; it was difficult, but joining Manchester United is a great opportunity. I am very happy here; it's remarkable to be with a group of people who are football stars but are also humble as human beings."
