Carlos Tevez Is Homesick And Too Chubby To Play

Shanghai Shenhua manager Wu Jingui has dropped Carlos Tevez from his first-team plans, accusing the striker of being too "overweight" to play.

Striker Tevez, who is reportedly the world's highest-paid player on STG650,000 a week ($1.08m), has struggled for form in China and has only scored twice in 11 appearances. He's not fit to play, ' said the coach.

"I had a talk with him today about tactics, but I won't let him play for now, he isn't physically ready", added Wu in an interview with the Shanghai Morning Post.

"Both him and (Colombian Fredy) Guarin are overweight".

Australia are running the survey to gauge interest in officially putting the vote to their electorate. The 28-year-old was raised as a Mormon but is now a Christian after his family converted in 2011.

Tevez returned to the club after recovering from injury in Argentina and his boss was largely disappointed with his star player being overweight. "If you're unable do your utmost to play, there's no point in picking you".

Wu Jingui, the new caretaker manager of Shanghai Shenhua, has not been impressed with Tevez's commitment.

The 76-times capped global now appears to be in limbo in China unless he gets into a decent physical condition to play, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him leave at some point in the near future.

And Wu - a replacement for Gus Poyet, who resigned following Shenhua's defeat to Henan Jianye last week which left the club just eight points clear of the relegation zone after 23 games - took aim at the former Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United forward.
