Carlos Tevez Says Stint In China Was A Seven Month Holiday

Carlos Tevez Says Stint In China Was A Seven Month Holiday

Carlos Tevez completely laughed off his stay in the Chinese Super League in an interview.

The Argentine has returned to Boca Juniors for a third spell with the club after spending seven months at Shanghai Shenhua, where he raked in mega bucks but offered very little.

After joining Shenhua in December 2017, Tevez made just 20 appearances for the club - with his attitude and work ethic less than impressive.

One clip of him being completely half-arsed in a game went viral, while he also received criticism for going to Disneyland when he was supposed to be injured.

The 33-year old was earning a whopping £615,000 per week according to reports and his recent comments about his time there won't do anything for his popularity.

"I was on holiday for seven months in China," the well-travelled striker joked when questioned on his time there by TyC Sports, via Goal.

"It's fine for the Shanghai coach and president to criticise me, I didn't know what I was doing there."


Tevez made a reported £32 million during his vacation in the Far East, and after his contract was terminated following a mutual agreement, he now embarks on a third stint with his beloved Boca.

He didn't leave on great terms last time and hopes to put right this time around.

"I know there are people who were annoyed by how I left, but that's normal," he added.

"I was not in a position to give 100 per cent, but it was going to hurt the fans no matter what I did. Now the fans will see me again with the Boca shirt and they will be excited and happy."
