Tevez should stay in England, whatever Diego says
Diego Maradona has advised Manchester United and Argentina forward Carlos Tevez to join Inter Milan.
Then again he also thinks Atletico Madrid striker and compatriot Sergio Aguero should do the same. Who’ll be next? Barca’s Lionel Messi, another Argentine?
Tevez, whose bustling style of play seems at its most effective in the English Premier League, would surely be wasted in the rather drab confines of Serie A.
Tevez’s style has been a constant source of entertainment since he arrived in England.
It’s a shame, then, that after hitting 19 goals during United’s Premier League and Champions League campaigns last season, Tevez has been a peripheral figure in 2008-09 following the purchase of Dimitar Berbatov.
If Alex Ferguson continues to favour the rather languid, nonchalant style of Berbatov over the hardworking Tevez, the Argentine is going to have to make a move, and where better than title-rivals Liverpool?
With Robbie Keane and Fernando Torres struggling, perhaps the dynamic Tevez is just the man to complete Liverpool’s forward line.
