When Carlos Tevez decided he wanted to leave Manchester United, I was one of the many fans who were calling for Liverpool to sign Tevez. I believed a combination of Tevez and Torres would have been what we need to kick on and win the Premier League. Coupled with the fact that Mascherano and Tevez are very good friends, it would have been easy for Tevez to settle in at Liverpool and Mascherano may not have decided to leave Liverpool if his buddy Tevez was there. When Tevez decided to join Manchester City, I was gutted, but now I am glad Tevez did not sign for Liverpool!
Tevez has now handed in a transfer request at Manchester City. Tevez says his relationship with “certain executives and individuals” at the club “has broken down beyond repair”. Tevez stressed he has “no personal issue” with manager Roberto Mancini and thanked owner Sheikh Mansour for his “understanding and support”.
I find it hard to believe that Tevez has no personal issue with Mancini especially after the way Tevez fumes when he is subbed off by the manager.
We do not need such players at Liverpool and what is to say that Tevez would not have done the exact same thing if he had joined Liverpool? What I find amazing is that Tevez is one of the highest paid players in the league, he pockets £200,000 a week and he still has this terrible attitude towards the team that pays his bills. Some people are saying Tevez has handed in a transfer request because he wants to get Manchester City to up his wages to £250,000 a week! But I believe that Tevez is seriously unhappy at City and no amount of money will keep him there.
Now if Manchester City accept his transfer request, would Tevez be a good signing for Liverpool this January or in the summer?
