Carlos Tevez Says He Needs Time to Settle at Shanghai
Carlos Tevez has attracted a lot of criticism since his move to Chinese Super League with Shanghai Shenhua.
He may have become the best paid player in the world with wages at a reported £ 650,000 per week, but his performances on the pitch have left a lot to be desired. The Argentine striker has often been injured and he has not produced the goods whenever he has played. This has led to the club struggling in the mid-table of the Chinese Super League. Tevez has managed to score just one goal in four appearances for the club.
It appears that his former club Boca Juniors are reportedly ready to take advantage of his unhappiness in China by making him more in the upcoming summer transfer window. Boca Juniors president recently spoke about the possibility of bringing Tevez back to the club, and he ruled out any problems with finances being an issue. He said that Boca Juniors are more than well-equipped to sign Tevez.
The striker was recently spotted in Disneyland even when he was on the treatment table. This has once again raised concerns that Tevez is not 100% committed to the Chinese outfit. The striker has dismissed suggestions by saying that he is not entirely settled with the new surroundings, and it may take a while before he stands to produce his best form for the club.
"I still haven't completely adapted to the CSL.With time, it will get better. I get on well with my teammates, there's no problem there," said Tevez. Former Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has been setting the pace in the Chinese Super League. His team, Guangzhou EvergrandeTaobao Fc, have been dominating the division with an incredible set of results. Even Shanghai SIPG, who brought an Oscar, have also been struggling for the consistent form.
