What’s happened to Tevez?

He used to be so sweet

West Ham and even Man United fans will remember Carlos Tevez as a cheerful young terrier, who would do just about anything for his team. He’s still one heck of a competitor, but what’s with all of the rage?

These days he seems to oscillate between giving tearful interviews about how much he hates football, or he’s barking at Mancini. What’s happened to Tevez? Seriously. Let us know with a comment.

    If he hated football so much, surely he’d be pleased at being whipped off? Miserable wee shite!

    The pressure of being the main man at a club with ideas above its station. That’s not a dig, just the way it seems

    Seem to be clutching at straws here a bit, (maybe its a slow news morning).

    He just seems to be angry at being taken off like all strikers do, its not a bad thing, it shows passion.

    Hi Really?, not clutching at straws at all – it’s not an isolated incident though is it? He seems to be bitching and moaning A LOT these days. It’s quite a stark contrast to the cheerful go-getter he was not so long ago, no?

    It’s called passion. No one wants to be taken off even if there is only 10 minutes left. Fair play to him for letting his frustration be known. Though that probably isn’t the best way to go about it infront of all his team mates and the crowd etc.

    I think…
    - he misses Craig Bellamy (seriously)
    - he feels unloved by the clubs he played for
    - he’s fed up with the inside politics of club management
    - he misses home and family
    - he feels like a product–not a person
    - Robert Mancini has pushed him over the edge with his unrelenting training regime (Carlos hates training…Rio Ferdinand once said he didn’t train hard like everyone else–preferring instead to save his energy on game day to impress the fans)

    Watching city implode is fun!

    People neglect or just simply forget that he was a pitbull in the Argentinian leagues. If memory serves, he was involved in a major brawl in a match in South America. I thought it was generally understood that he was a bit of a firebrand.

    Tevez is one of the best player in the league, not just because if his skill but for everything else he gives the team. If he runs after every damn ball, why would he “love” being subbed. He is a true competitor and he is LOVED everywhere he goes. He was at Boca, it Corinthians, West Ham, Man U, Man City and Argentina (national team).
    Yes he is a “firebrand”, but he is one of the best and always give 100%. It is hard to say the same about any top English player out there.
