Carlos Tevez denies that one of the reasons he is not being selected for Argentina is because he has a poor relationship with Lionel Messi.
The 30-year-old is set to miss out on a place in his country’s squad for this summer’s World Cup but says he is on good terms with the Barcelona man.
“I really don’t know where certain stories come from,” Tevez said as part of his interview with Cronica.
“The truth is that we have played together in matches and training and there has never been a problem.
“He is a very nice person and very polite. This should be his World Cup and I wish him well from the bottom of 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.”
