Carlos Tevez has not been selected for the Argentina national team in the last few months and it has been reported that he has fell out with manager Alejandro Sabella. His exclusion from the team is extremely surprising given that he has been in fine run of form for Juventus this campaign. It has been rumoured that his absence from the team is due to the fallout with Lionel Messi rather than the manager. Messi, though, has rejected to the speculation by saying that he has no say in the team selection whatsoever.
Tevez has struggled to reclaim the importance he once had when he moved to Manchester city. Since the fallout with Roberto Mancini, which resulted in a six-month exile from all forms of football, Tevez has been working to rediscover his touch. The striker is slowly getting back to his best after sealing a £ 10 million move to Juventus in the summer. He has not been selected for the recent international matches and this is causing him a lot of pain. He has revealed that he will not watch the team play at the 2014 World Cup if he is not selected.
Tevez and Messi did not enjoy a great partnership with each other, but the Barcelona ace favours playing with Sergio Aguero.
“If Sabella hasn’t called me up, I’m not going to phone him to find out why he doesn’t pick me. I don’t think I will watch it (World Cup 2014) because it hurts me to see the national team, it’s bad for me,” said Tevez in a recent interview. “We have a spectacular group and it’s certainly no problem if Tevez comes in. But at the same time that’s the coach’s decision and we players have nothing to do with that,” said Messi to the ESPN.
