Carlos Tevez explains why Wayne Rooney gave him a Lamborghini

After being bullied by his Manchester United teammates, Carlos Tevez has revealed how Wayne Rooney gave him a Lamborghini.

Tevez signed for United back in 2007 from West Ham United and spent two seasons at the club before joining arch-rivals Manchester City.

While recalling his stint at United Tevez said one of the stand-out moments was the United players teasing him after he arrived at the Carrington training base in a rather ordinary Audi.

In an interview with ESPN, Tevez revealed why Rooney handed him a Lamborghini, "At Manchester United training, players would turn up with a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. Everyone, even the worst player, would have a Ferrari.

"I turned up in the Audi that the club gave you and they all bugged me about it as if it was a Fiat 600. I went, without registering, around Manchester with this car, he gave it to me."

Tevez also revealed that he was close to Rooney due to growing up in poor backgrounds, "I identified a lot with him because of where he came from, a poor area of Liverpool.

"He always fought for the ball as if it were his last, the same way I played. I saw myself reflected in him."
