It has been over ten years since Carlos Tevez made that controversial switch from one Manchester side to another. We will never really know what occurred when he left Manchester United and join local rivals City – Tevez claimed one thing, United claimed another. However, one thing is certain and that is that Sir Alex Ferguson was wrong when he said that the Argentine was not worth £25 million.
He Has Had a Great Career

From his early days playing in South America to his heroics at West Ham in the Premier League, all the way to when he was scoring for fun at Juventus in the Serie A, the Argentine has proved himself time and time again.

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

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.
Reports in the CSL say the fans are losing their patience after the club spent so much in bringing him into the country and making him one of the highest paid players on the planet. 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. Injury and inconsistent form has limited the contributions of Tevez, a top star that has traveled around the world playing in South America, England for West Ham, Man City, Man United and Italian side Juventus.Continue reading
