Carlos Tevez unsure over his future beyond this season
Former Argentina international Carlos Tevez admits that he is unsure over his future with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua following his struggles to adapt to the country’s way of leaving.
The 33-year-old made the headlines during December last year after he agreed on a £615,000 a week package to join the Chinese Super League. The former Manchester United and Juventus man was initially hoping to end his career with Boyhood club Boca Juniors, but the £60m offer from Shenhua was just too good for both parties as it would help the South American side improve their facilities further.
Tevez has since bagged just a solitary goal in six outings for Shenhua, and he is seemingly mulling over a return to Argentina at the end of the current campaign, he said, via TyC Sports: "I left not to hurt Boca.
Honestly, I do not know what I'm going to do at the end of the year. If I'm not hungry for glory, it's very difficult to stay in the club. I have to find myself to go back, I know I gave then everything.
"When I left, my silence bothered journalists more than people. The press wanted me to say goodbye with a note, they are difficult. For me it was not easy either. Boca fan always wants to see me with that shirt.”
The 33-year-old was nowhere in the reckoning for the Argentine national side prior to his move to the Far East, but not much has gone well in his stay in China with criticism over his lack of work rate for the money he earns. Tevez was spotted standing still during a recent Chinese Super League game and this led to widespread attention with fans particularly on Twitter slamming the player’s actions. Tevez netted 25 goals in 58 outings during his second stint at Boca.
