Carlos Tevez has compared his current Juventus boss Antonio Conte to Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson, claiming there are not many differences between the two.
Tevez, who joined Serie A champions Juventus from Manchester City this summer, has been impressed with the work of Conte, who has been tipped to eventually succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
"These are two winners, two coaches who see their club as the best in the world and always want to win against their opponents," Tevez is quoted as saying by Le 10 Sport. "For Ferguson, the Manchester United badge is the most important thing, to defend at all costs. The same goes for Conte at Juventus."
Tevez, who played for Manchester United between 2007 and 2009, then hinted that managers like Conte and Ferguson allow him to produce his best football on the pitch, because "they are the first to believe strongly in what they do".
This isn't the first time that Tevez has compared the two managers. Back in August, Tevez said Conte was like Ferguson because "he does not leave anything to chance and leaves no stone unturned."
However, Tevez's kind words might come as somewhat of a surprise to the retired Ferguson.
During Manchester City's Premier League victory campaign, Tevez drew widespread criticism after holding up a banner reading the words: "R.I.P Fergie".
