Carlos Tevez has laughed off a disastrous year in the Chinese Super League, calling his stay in Asia a “seven-month holiday”.
The former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus star earned a reported $40 million for his year with Shanghai Shenhua after moving from Boca Juniors at the start of 2017.
His move, however, was wholly underwhelming, as the striker played just 20 times for his club and scored a pitiful four goals amid complaints over his unprofessional attitude.
Now back at Boca, Tevez at least he is able to joke about his failed Chinese venture.
“I was on holiday for seven months in China,” the former Argentina international laughed when questioned on his Shenhua spell by TyC Sports.
“It’s fine for the Shanghai coach and president to criticise me, I didn’t know what I was doing there.”
