Carlos Tevez gets slammed for walking on the pitch

Former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been slammed for his visible lack of effort during a recent Chinese Super League game for Shanghai Shenhua.


The Argentina international opted to snub advances from ex-club West Ham United in order to bag the riches from the Far East in December last year.

Tevez is currently the highest paid players in world football with a staggering wage package of £634,000-a-week, and such a sum would require a player to at least give his 80 percent for the club. However, the Argentine appeared to remain standstill for a moment as he allowed the play to bypass against fellow league club Tianjin Teda.

The video went viral on social media, and fans on Twitter criticised the 33-year-old after he was doing nothing on the playing field despite being paid lump sums of money, Chris Atter tweeted: “pay me £10k a month and I’d happily put Carlos Tevez out of a job. I’d break my back for that kind of money #lazy.” Read more Carlos Tevez gets slammed for walking on the pitch

TEVEZ IS APPARENTLY NOT HIGHEST PAID FOOTBALLER

Argentine Carlos Tevez has turned out not to be the highest paid footballer in the world as widely reported.


No doubt he earns the mouth and eye watering salary but his international teammate Ezekiel Lavezzi trumps him in pay-out.

The striker started from his home country before he moved to England. After his sojourn at West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City, he moved to the Serie A where he continued his illustrious career with Juventus.

He returned home in 2015 but after two and a half seasons at home, he could no longer say no to the huge salary he Chinese were flaunting. He agreed to the move to the Far East and the move was celebrated all over the world as he was set to earn the highest salary offered to a footballer on the planet.

Tevez signed with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua and has been playing. However, the latest report from Football Leaks shows that Lavezzi receives way more than the Argentine.

While Tevez is earning a whopping £634,615 per week, Lavezzi receives £798,000 per week playing for Hebei China Fortune. Read more TEVEZ IS APPARENTLY NOT HIGHEST PAID FOOTBALLER

CARLOS TEVEZ’S NEW HOME UP IN FLAMES

Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez moved to the Asia to play in the Chinese Super League where he receives a record mouth-watering salary.


The Shanghai Shenhua stadium – the new home to the Argentine star – where he plays has gone up in flames.

The 33-000 seater stadium was recorded burning with a huge inferno and emitting black smoke. Early reports claimed no life was loss and that the fire started at 8 am local time. The fire burnt through one end of Hongkou Stadium, causing a traffic mess. The fire fighting services managed the situation when they arrived.

TEVEZ HAS TERRIBLE DEBUT WHILE OSCAR SHINES

Two of the biggest football stars that moved to China Carlos Tevez and Oscar made their debut for their respective clubs.


Shanghai Shenhua’s start with Tevez did not exactly go as they would want as they lost the AFC Champions League to Brisbane Roar. On the other hand, the Brazilian started well with Shanghai SIPG.

One Weibo post reads: “What is the point of hiring expensive foreign coaches when they are no better than the ones who were already there.” This echoed the popular sentiment from the fans, based on the traction it received. Many blamed Coach Gustavo Poyet for the loss of Shenhua to Roar at the AFC Championship.

Many focused on the addition of Argentina international and world record salary earner Tevez, ignoring the match against Roar. Many criticized his move to the country as he was past his prime and others battled if he was worth the salary he is being paid.

The AFC Champions League playoff is an single-legged affair and Shenhua lost it in front of their fans at the Hongkou Stadium. Former Nigeria international Obafemi Martins was expected to combine well with the former Manchester United striker to move mountains for the club but the duo struggled to impress.

Without revealing the actual numbers, Tevez claimed that the figures being spoken on the Internet are certainly not true. Read more Carlos Tevez Dismisses Suggestions of £600,000 a Week Wages

Tevez defends Messi’s decision

Carlos Tevez has defended Lionel Mess’s decision to retire from International football.


The Boca Juniors player has stated that he understands the way Messi feels and that fans around the world should respect him. Indeed Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi has announced that he will not be playing for Argentina again following their defeat in the final against Chile. This was the second final lost in a row by Messi with Argentina, and he said that he had had enough.

However, there are many pundits that believe that Messi’s decision has nothing to do with Argentina defeat. They believe that the problem is deeper than what many people believe. For Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi has problems with the Argentina Football Association, and this is the main reason why he has decided to stop playing for the national team.

Carlos Tevez stated that the Argentina Football Federation is currently in a mess and does not do anything in order to help the players. He believes that Lionel Messi has had enough of this situation, and this is why he has taken this decision. For Tevez, all the Argentina players are motivated to play for their team and to represent the country, but the federation is not doing anything to help them.

Carlos Tevez is a consistent starter for the Argentine club Boca Juniors and he has been performing with them since June of 2015 after having completed his transfer from Juventus over to Boca Juniors for a transfer fee of €6.5 million and so far things have been going fairly well for the veteran attacker who continues scoring goals and playing a big role at a competitive despite having reached a fairly elevated age.

Boca Juniors is the childhood club of Carlos Tevez as it was with them where Tevez managed to make his debut appearance at a competitive stage and he was able to do this at the age of 16.

When Tevez was 16, he made his debut for Boca Juniors when they faced off with Talleres de Cordoba in the Torneo Apertura and from there on out Tevez went on to make a total of 75 appearances while scoring 26 goals during his 3 year long stay with Boca Juniors.

Tevez not included for World Cup qualifiers

The 2018 World Cup qualifiers are looming on the horizon and every nation is working hard to win their respective matches in order to have any hope of advancing to the next World Cup and Argentina’s schedule sees them facing off with Chile and Bolivia on March 24 and March 29 respectively.

Unfortunately for Carlos Tevez, he will not be participating in any of these qualifying matches as the 32 year old attacker just doesn’t have the same kind of impact and influence that he used to have some time ago.

Tevez is well aware of the amount of talented players that are performing in the Argentine national football team with performers such as: Angel di Maria, Erik Lamela, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Gonzalo Higuain and Lionel Messi just to name a few of the more renowned players.

With all of these figures in the Argentine squad, it’s extremely difficult for Carlos Tevez to find a consistent spot in the national football team of his country and considering that he is 32 years old, that’s a pretty elevated age for almost any player in the world of football. It’s been rumoured taht instead of even watching the matches, Tevez is off on a tour of Australia, promoting real money Australian pokies at Pokies Palace to football lovers across the world.

Carlos Tevez is currently performing for Boca Juniors but it’s believed that the Argentine attacker is not going through the best of times with his childhood club as he is demanding to his manager that he gets more free time or holidays as the veteran player is starting to feel burnt out after playing so much consistent matches non-stop.

Adrian Ruocco is the agent of Tevez and he revealed details concerning his client as Ruocco stated that there is a possibility of Tevez leaving Boca Juniors sooner than what his contract has stipulated as he said: “Carlos has two or three years remaining in his career and he could go to China or Saudi. He has to enjoy playing once more; otherwise he may want to leave in June.”
