I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again here: Carlos Tevez is not world-class. He’s a very good footballer who is more than good enough to cut it at the highest level, but he is not world-class. He is not as good as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. He is not even as good as Wayne Rooney. Tevez is a rich man’s Dirk Kuyt. That’s exactly the Argentine’s level. And that’s how Fergie used him last season, to good effect.
But Tevez is deluded. It appears he thinks he’s a lot better than he is.
If last week’s reports that Tevez wanted to be United’s best-paid player (translation: Kia Joorabchian, Carlito’s repulsive puppet master/pimp, wanted his charge to be United’s best-paid player) were anything like true, then there’s only one thing for Fergie to do: ditch Tevez immediately. United will be much better off without the Argentine – Tevez has already sulked enough to show me that he lacks the character to ever become a United great. Fergie has no time for sulking ingrates and we won’t see Tevez in a United shirt again.
The papers say that Tevez agreed to join Man City a couple of weeks ago. Good riddance, say United fans, but you just know Tevez will score in the Manc derby next season.
Btw, United fans have been burned by Argentine players before, in the form of Juan Veron and Gabriel Heinze. And Tevez the Traitor (as many United fans will forever refer to him) makes it three.
