Carlos Tevez reiterates threat to quit football

I’d quite honestly do it for free

Carlos Tevez is a strange one. Towards the end of his stint at Manchester United the Argentinian complained that he simply wasn’t playing enough football, and didn’t feel loved by the club.

Fast forward 18 months, and the worm has turned. Suddenly Carlos feels that he is playing too much football, to such an extent that he thinks he may quit at any time.

Tevez told the News of the World:

“I’m an old guy now, and I started to think about some stuff. For example, I am less tolerant as a person today than I was a few years ago. Then I think – what happens if I quit football as long as I am okay in my life? When I talk about quitting, I mean quitting football, not just the national team. But at the moment I still don’t know if this is going to be in one month, one year, three or five years. I have the idea of quitting in my mind. Maybe one of these days, I will just wake up and say no more football.”

Now I do understand that the media pressure and two games a week mentality does drain the body, but come on Carlos. It does seem a little bit of a slap to the face of nurses, charity workers and children that adore the Argentinian both at home and in England.

Club captain of City, striker for one of the best national teams in the world, and paid one hundred thousand pounds a week. Some people are never happy.

    Tevez is an idiot. He is always coming out with stupid statements like this. If he wants to quit, then he should just go ahead and quit. He will not be missed.
