"I don't know where they got such nonsense from! Everyone publishes it but the truth is that we get on well. We have shared moments together, training sessions, matches and there has never been a problem. He is a charming and very polite person," said Tevez in an interview with the Argentine daily Cronica on Wednesday.

"This should be his World Cup and I hope that is the case with all my heart because he is a marvellous player. He and Cristiano (Ronaldo), with whom I played at Manchester United, are the best players in the world."
