Shanghai coach slams overweight Carlos Tevez

The New Shanghai Shenhua boss, Wu Jingui has taken a hit on star striker, Carlos Tevez, saying that the Argentine is “overweight” and will not play for him until he gets in shape.

Tevez has only just returned from an injury on Sunday after taking off to rehab in his home in Argentina.

Wu Jingui doesn’t appear ready to welcome him back to his squad with open arms.

Following a 2-1 loss to Henan Jianye, Shanghai Shenhua manager Gus Poyet was sacked.

His replacement pulled no punches when quizzed by reporters about the 33-year-old’s fitness.

“I won’t pick him right now. He’s not ready physically. He’s not fit to play,” Wu said of Tevez, who has been constantly linked with a return to Boca Juniors,” He said.

“He is overweight, along with [Fredy] Guarin. I have to take responsibility for the team and the players as well.”

He added, “If you are unable do your utmost to play, there’s no point in picking you.”

Tevez joined Shanghai from Boca Juniors in December for a reported fee of £71.6 million.

The former Manchester City and Juventus striker has made 11 appearances and scored just two goals in CSL this year while being plagued by persistent calf injury. (DailyPost)
