Under-performing Tevez blasts standard of Chinese football

Under-performing Tevez blasts standard of Chinese football”

The latest twist in Tevez's short time in China has seen him ridicule the standard of the league and the players within it, as he provided a frank assessment of Chinese football.

The Argentinian forward joined Shanghai Shenhua in January but has endured a hard nine months in China.

"Chinese players are not as naturally skilled like South American or European players", Tevez said in an interview with French television station SFR Sport.

Shanghai Shenhua striker Carlos Tevez has launched an attack on the capabilities of Chinese footballers, claiming those playing in the country will not be able to reach the top "even in 50 years".

"Their football is very different". The fans treat it very differently as well.

Carlos Tevez has hit back at suggestions from Shanghai Shenhua's chairman that he is unfit to play, describing Chinese players as "not naturally skilled" and doubting whether they will be able to compete with the best nations "even in 50 years".

It has been reported that Tevez is set to return to his boyhood club Boca Juniors soon, despite there still being more than a year left on his remaining contract.

Tevez, who is on a deal reportedly worth £615,000 a week, has struggled with fitness issues and recently had his manager Wu Jingui accuse him of being overweight.

The 33-year-old former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus forward scored Shenhua's consolation goal in a 6-1 defeat against cross-city rivals Shanghai SIPG last weekend.

He was then an unused substitute for Tuesday's dour 0-0 draw with Shandong Luneng.
