But according to the report on GOAL and Daily Mail, Wayne Rooney who is now the manager of Derby County explained that he was so pleased with the connection between him and Tevez.

Wayne Rooney's statement about Carlos Tevez

“Tevez. I just loved our connection. The two of us up front, we complimented each other really well.
“Normally if I played with Louis Saha, Ruud van Nistelrooy or Robin van Persie – these strikers were always the No.9 and I’d play as a No.10.
“With Tevez we could rotate, I’d be the No.9, he’d take the No.9 spot and I’d be No.10. When we lost the ball we’d be like two bulls trying to get it back. As a strike partner, he was the one I enjoyed playing with the most.”

Scholes demands rebuild at Man United, names 1 Premier League coach club should hire

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Paul Scholes demanded a total rebuild at Premier League side Manchester United backing the Old Trafford chiefs to hire Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhutti as new gaffer.

Since Manchester United chiefs hire Ralf Rangnick as replacement for Ole Solskjaer, the club are still not finding things rosy in the Premier League and were forced to draws in last two games.

And on Saturday, February 12, Ralph Hasenhutti and his wards forced Manchester United to a 1-1 draw in Premier League game which was a painful result for the Red Devils' fans.

Speaking in the BT Sport studio, Glenn Hoddle threw in the suggestion that Hasenhuttl would be a good fit for Manchester United.
