Will never go back to Manchester, not even on holiday: Tevez
London: Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez has launched an astonishing attack on the club by saying that it has nothing to offer and that when he leaves he will never go back.
Tevez, who is reportedly paid 286,000 pounds every week by City, also said that he lived in a rented house in Manchester because there was no point buying there.
When asked if it was the weather that made the city so bad, the 27-year-old said: “The weather, everything. It has nothing.”
“I’m never going back to Manchester, not even on holiday, not for anything,” he added.
He further described how lonely he was in Manchester and how happy he was on holiday in Argentina.
“I don’t have any new friends. I am always with my family and lifelong friends. I don’t even leave my house. I’m the stay-at-home type. When I have my dad and friends over, we have a barbecue, we have fun,” a daily quoted Tevez, as saying.
“But I’m always on my own, especially in the last few months. I’ve found the past few months very hard,” he added.
Earlier, City manager Roberto Mancini had claimed that his team can win the Premier League next season with or without Tevez.
Tevez has scored 51 times in 82 games for the club, including 19 goals from 28 appearances in the recently concluded Premier League season, and still has three years remaining on his contract.
