Sep 17, 2017-

 “Overweight” Carlos Tevez climbed off the bench and scored just his third Chinese league goal but could not prevent Shanghai Shenhua getting hammered 6-1 at rivals Shanghai SIPG on Saturday. The 33-year-old Argentine, among the best-paid players in the world, was not expected to feature at all after new Shenhua boss Wu Jingui said in the week Tevez was overweight. But on Friday, Wu, who took over when Gus Poyet quit on Monday, said Tevez had been putting in extra training to lose the bulk. (AFP)
