World’s Highest Paid Player Launches Scathing Attack On Chinese Football

World’s Highest Paid Player Launches Scathing Attack On Chinese Football

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 22, 2017 10:00 AM @KeeganKruger

Carlos Tevez, who is reportedly the highest paid player in the world, has launched a scathing attack on Chinese football.

World's Highest Paid Player Labelled A Flop

The former Manchester United, Juventus and Manchester City striker, who signed for Shanghai Shenhua in January, is said to be earning about £615 000 (R11 million) a week, which is more than what Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are apparently being paid. 

Tevez has come under heavy criticism since his arrival in China and has now taken a swipe back at the state of the country’s football.

"In South America and Europe, players learn to play football when they're kids, but not here. So technically they are not very good,” Tevez told French broadcaster SFR Sport:

"Their football is very different. The fans treat it very differently as well. And I don't think they are going to get to the same heights, not even in 50 years."

Messi Has More Goals Than 15 PSL Teams!

In the past couple of weeks, the Argentine has been labelled "overweight" by his new coach Wu Jingui, who dropped him from the squad, and a “flop” by Shanghai owner Wu Xiaohui.

Can you see Tevez lasting in China? Have your say in the comments section below.

Did he make research before signing contruct,if he did he wouldn't be saying what he says now,I have always questioned his level of commitment to his footbal career,Remember at Manchester City he left the club in the middle of season to play golf in Argentine

This guy has a point bt also loves money now his criticising their football,well it don't matter as long he keeps getting the moola...
