Carlos Tevez is seeking to win his first winners’ medal(s) in England this season, with United look strong both in the league and the Champions League. With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic, to name a few, collecting their first Premiership title last season, Tevez is hoping he can do the same in May.
United players are all too aware of how their success and chance of winning silverware lies in the hands of their team mates as much as it does them as individuals. Tevez has explained today how he knew before joining United how talented Rooney and Ronaldo were, but claims it is Paul Scholes who is really driving United’s title bid this season.
“When you see Scholes day to day, he’s incredible,” Tevez said. “He’s the motor of Manchester and has been for a long while. He’s a fundamental piece for the manager and ourselves – that’s very noticeable – and he has incredible quality and personality. Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney are fantastic players but if you ask me who is the one that has surprised me the most, then it’s Scholesy.”
Do you think Scholes’ ability still has the influence on the team its had in the past?
