If there was voting for the M.S.P. (Most Spoiled Player) award, Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez would be the unanimous winner. In Tuesday night’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich, Tevez reportedly refused to enter the game when manager Roberto Mancini attempted to substitute the striker into the match in the second half, prompting the club to suspend him.
It’s easy to be empathetic for the guy, he is only making about $350,000 a week playing for City. It must be tough having to live in a seven-bedroom mansion and dealing with the stress of playing for one of the world’s premier teams in one of the globe’s most prestigious leagues. Graeme Souness, former Liverpool manager, sums it up when he told Sky Sports, “He epitomizes what most people think is wrong with modern football.”
Suck it up Tevez. There are millions of people around the globe that would do anything to be in your position. You have the world in your hands and you are willing to throw it away because you don’t see eye to eye with your manager? Pathetic. Let’s hope this two week suspension gives you time to clear your head.
P.S. – Come outside, your fans left you a note!
