Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua have slammed a report from The Mirror which stated Carlos Tevez was being paid his mega salary while his teammates were not.
The Chinese Football Association have since dismissed the so-called ‘wage crisis’ situation while suggesting that the players have been offered their respective wages.
Tevez joined Shenhua from Boca Juniors in January for a staggering wage package of £615,000 a week, and he has since attracted media attention for whatever he does on and off the playing field. The Asian Football Confederation had sent a request to the Chinese clubs to ensure that they have their finances in order ahead of next year’s AFC Champions League, but The Mirror misunderstood the details by claiming that 13 of the 16 clubs could be forced to forfeit from the Chinese top-flight.
Meanwhile, the publication also seemed to suggest Tevez was paid his wages alone while his teammates were left empty-handed in their pockets. Shenhua vice president Bruce Zhou has now come out in the support of his high-profile striker while he admits that all clubs in the league have paid up the wages in full.Continue reading
