Fans of the Chinese Super League are getting tired of a misfiring Carlos Tevez, reports in China say.
The Argentine moved to China this year but he has not quite impressed his teeming fans. The former Boca Juniors man moved to the Far East for €38 million but has failed to reach expectations.

The 33-year old was blasted by the public when his pictures at Disneyland Shanghai circulated on social media the same day he missed an important match due to injury.
After a 2-2 draw against Chongqing, Shenhua are in the lower rung of the table, further infuriating fans that were already expecting more from the presence of Tevez.

Osorio has the right to think that the 27-year-old will not contribute much to the squad under such poor form.
