@Melizwe17@K4L I share the same sentiment but I still think Tevez is needed.

I am happy to see these two Dybala, Icardi. Its about time they also get rid of Aguero, and i hope Higuain and others are not going to be considered again. I remember the final against Germany, Messi was not given any space to breath and these two (Higain and Aguero) had to show up but they were nowhere to be seen.

@Hloni'mayeng2 Idiot, Gabuza is a better cow than Aguero. Gabuza scored goals for Bafana Bafana. what has Aguero done for Argentina? he only scores goals against EPL weak teams like Chelsea, Asernal, etc.
