WAYNE Rooney did not make the treacherous journey from Old Trafford to Eastlands after all but one man who did, Carlos Tevez, is believed to be increasingly considering ditching life at Manchester City because he is homesick.
Team-mate Roque Santa Cruz has suggested that Tevez is missing his family in Buenos Aires and claimed he would not be surprised if the Argentine moved home soon.
Eurosport’s Early Doors suggests things could have been different for the striker had he bothered to learn the language. They point out that the former West-Ham and Manchester United star has been living and working in England for four-and-a-half years and has shown little improvment in his grasp of the Queen’s.
The player appears to joke about this fact himself when he recently appeared in a Pepsi advert with the tagline “this promotion is so easy to explain even Tevez can do it in English.”
He hasn’t exactly shown his understanding of supporters’ sentiment since his arrival in Britain; his shambolic transfer from West Ham to Manchester United followed by his decision to leave Old Trafford for the club’s nearest and greatest rivals. His PR agent is doing a terrific job.
Now it appears the Pitbull may be ready to break from his leash again and run home.
In Tevez’s defence, however, one poster did leave the following comment.
“Lets be honest Britain is a s**thole. I’m homesick and I was born here! Homesick as in ‘sick of home’ that is.”
Ouch! What Póg Mo Goal doesn’t understand is what’s David Beckham’s excuse? All those years living and playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world, and he never picked up the basics…oh, and then he went to Real Madrid.
