Man Utd's Ferguson: Tevez exceptional talent

Ferguson is excited at what the Argentina striker can add to the title-winning United side of last season.

"Tevez has shown he can be one of the top strikers in the world," said Ferguson.

"The boy has got something exceptional in him. We experienced it in the last game against West ham at Old Trafford. He was a real handful to us.

"Tevez trained with us on Friday and Saturday. I was surprised how well he did. He looked quite sharp.

"It would be nice to think I could have him available for the Reading game (next weekend), but if not then, I'm sure the following week.

"I can see (Tevez and Wayne Rooney playing together). I have read all these opinions about the two of them being identical. I don't think they are at all.

"What you can say is they both have a similar physique, they are both two-footed, they are both quickish, they can both beat a man. I don't think it's a bad thing in terms of the similarities.

"When they get playing with each other they will hopefully get an understanding about where they are playing."
