In a postgame interview following the win over Minnesota, Wayne Rooney was asked which former teammate Lucho Acosta reminded him of most. A bit stumped, Rooney answered Carlos Tevez. This got me thinking about comparisons of the two players and of the two partnerships.
Tevez and Acosta are players with similar backgrounds and talents, but grew into different roles as their careers matured. In this video I compare the great striker Carlos Tevez with DC United’s playmaker Lucho Acosta. Both had partnerships with Wayne Rooney that were hugely valuable to their teams, but had their share of differences as well.
