Fans adored 'The Pitbull of Manchester United' during his glittering spell at the club, loving his commitment and work rate.

"We suited each other's games. Louis Saha was brilliant as well but the thing with Tevez we worked off each other and we'd stick with each other. He'd go around and I'd go behind.

"I'll always remember it must have been horrible for defenders to face. When we haven't got the ball we'd be in their face.

"There was a lot talk when he signed that we wouldn't be able to play together.

"We hit it off from the start and played well together. I really enjoyed playing with him."
