The future of Carlos Tevez has been debated over the past few months, with no long-term contract for the player being offered as yet. Whilst the club have remained calm, insisting that a deal would be sorted in December, the press keeps linking our Argie with moves abroad.
Today, Tevez has made it quite clear he has every intention of staying at United, claiming his contract will be sorted soon.
“I remain relaxed and so are the club,” said Tevez. “We have been talking about it and everything is very advanced, as a consequence I think it will be sorted soon. I feel respected by my team-mates and by the technical staff.”
Tevez has been made to battle to play regularly throughout his career but remains unfazed by his situation
“I think it’s part of my life,” he declared. “Everywhere I have been I had to fight and it ended up with titles. I think that God tests me, not each year, but each month. And at the end of the day, winning league titles makes me feel great. The only club I didn’t win any title with was West Ham, but people told me, regarding the way we escaped, that it was like winning one. I can’t explain how happy I am when I win a title after a massive fight. I prefer it this way. That’s the story of my life: I have overcome obstacles since I was a kid. And right now I’m not going to change: I’m at the best club in the world and fighting for your position is normal.”
