Former Manchester city striker Carlos Tevez, who recently completed a £ 10 million move to Juventus, has said that he does not see himself playing for Argentina as long as Alejandro Sabella is in charge of the national team.
Sabella has been the manager of the Argentine national team since 2011 and Tevez has not been featured for the national team since then. The World Cup is just around the corner, but Tevez does not see himself playing at this tournament if Sabella remains in charge of the national team.
Sabella has been one of the few managers to have got the best out of Lionel Messi at the national level, and it is highly unlikely that he will be sacked before the World Cup. Tevez has even gone on to state that Sabella maybe a little afraid of him, which explains his reasons for not being selected. The 29-year-old played a crucial role in the national team during the regime of Diego Maradona, but it was an ill-fated time for the national team.
Tevez has also revealed that he would one day like to return to Argentina to finish his career. The striker has signed a long-term deal with Juventus, and he looks set on winning the Champions League once again. Tevez is likely to be the main striker for the Italian club in the coming season.
"I already know that I will not make it into Argentina's World Cup squad. Sabella has never called upon me so far. I don't know why Sabella refuses to call me up. Maybe he is afraid of me. I don't miss wearing the Argentina jersey. I love playing for my country, but the coach has made another decision. I want to return to Argentina and play for Boca Juniors once my contract with Juventus expires," said Tevez.
