Tevez joined Rooney at Old Trafford in 2007 and was a popular figure at the club before he left for rivals Manchester City two years later.
But despite his goals, the Argentinian couldn’t avoid being the butt of the jokes in the dressing room - due to the car he drove.
Tevez didn’t buy a luxury car and instead turned up to training in the Audi that the club supplied to all players.
However, that move resulted in him being ridiculed by Man United’s players - until Rooney stepped in.

"At Manchester United training, players would turn up with a Ferrari or a Lamborghini," he told ESPN, per Marca.
"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 spoke to Rooney and, the crazy guy that he is, he told me 'take the Lamborghini'.
"I went, without registering, around Manchester with this car, he gave it to me."
Crazy. We knew Rooney had a wild side to him, but giving a teammate a Lamborghini?!
Tevez continued by talking about the connection he had with the former England international.
“I identified a lot with him because of where he came from, a poor area of Liverpool,” Tevez, who currently plays for Boca Juniors, added.
"He always fought for the ball as if it were his last, the same way I played.
"I saw myself reflected in him."
The pair’s connection could be seen on the pitch at times as well.
