To the casual observer, Carlos Tevez's footwear appears to be the correct size. However, his behaviour has shown that the Argentinean is far too big for his boots.
The Juventus forward's most disgraceful prima donna act came in September 2011, when he appeared to refuse to come on as a substitute in a Champions League game against Bayern Munich. Yes, a man who is paid thousands to play in the kind of game that most of us can only dream of decided it was beneath him.
To make matters even worse, Tevez then proceeded to take an unauthorised vacation from the club, heading back to Argentina for several months—in the middle of the season—to practise his golf swing.
If there was any justice in the professional game, this act would have killed Tevez's career. But as we know, deep character flaws and unprofessional behaviour are universally tolerated in this industry provided the player has talent.
