Carloz Tevez incurs fans' wrath

Fans of Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua are running out of patience as they are now angry with their striker Carlos Tevez over his inability to score goals.

Tevez who has played for West Ham United,  Manchester City, United and Juventus, has failed to hit the expected high note because of injury and inconsistent form.

He has scored only once this season, although he did grab an assist in the 2-2 draw, and last month called Chinese players "clumsy" and "very naive".

It is understood that Shenhua fans are fast losing patience with Tevez, who is a teammate of Nigerian star Obafemi Martins chiefly because he is on a 38-million-euro ($42 million) salary that makes him one of the highest rewarded footballers on the planet but he is not justifying that in any away.

Argentine media quoted Tevez as saying he could leave Chinese football at the end of the season and Poyet apologised after Saturday's stalemate, telling state media: "We did well in attack today, but made two big mistakes in defense and conceded two goals."

Tevez has a history of falling out with clubs and managers and one infuriated fan wrote on China's Twitter-like Weibo website after his latest underwhelming showing: "Tevez's attitude is the worst in the team's history."

Another fed-up fan wrote: "Tevez should leave Shenhua. Compared to other players running on the field, Tevez is scared to close down and is afraid to get hurt... Tevez's deal is really not worth it".

One using the name RONALDO7wbfp wrote: "He is here for the high salary and the Disney membership.

"If you really can't bear it and is disappointed with the team, then do something to lead the team through the rough times instead of taking strolls on the pitch like a master."
