Carlos Tevez has revealed that when it comes to the Manchester derby, he supports the blue half of the city.
The Argentine forward spent time at Old Trafford and the Etihad before joining Juventus and was involved in one of the most memorable moments in Premier League history as the Citizens unveiled the famous 'Welcome to Manchester' sign.
Tevez won the league and Champions League during his two-year spell with Manchester United before unceremoniously switching to their 'noisy neighbours' and taking a number of digs at Sir Alex Ferguson.

The South American did go on to enjoy three strong seasons with City in his four-year spell at the club, helping the Sky Blues escape from the Red Devils' shadow.
And, in an interview with Yahoo Sport, Tevez reveals that City's emergence as a force in world football is the reason they remain close to his heart.
He said: "When Man United play Man City, I root for City. "To see City go from a neighbour team, if you will, to one of the big clubs in Europe makes me proud. I am a City fan."
However, the Boca Juniors striker does look back on his time at Old Trafford with fondness. "Thinking back, the two years I spent at United were wonderful," he confessed.
Tevez would be remembered as a United hero had he not made the short trip across Manchester.
Having scored 34 goals in 99 games, his reputation among Red Devils fans was burnt to the ground the moment he shook hands with then manager Mark Hughes.
However, his standing among City fans threatened to go down the same route following his refusal to come off the bench against Bayern Munich.
