A recent scandal involving Manchester City forward, Carlos Tevez, has left his reputation worse than ever.
During last Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich, Tevez was asked to come on as a substitute. Because of this, Tevez has been issued a two-week suspension, which he will be spending in Argentina.
Tevez's agent, Kia Joorabchian, reiterated why Tevez did not play for City. In a post-match interview, Tevez said:
"I did not feel right to play, so I did not."
Joorabchian later said that the translation of the question was not properly translated, thus making the answer different. Yet can a small translation mistake make so much a difference that it changes his answer completely? My answer is no.
Tevez has been on the decline of his career, surrounded by transfer rumors and a swelled ego. If he wasn't in the starting XI, he would not come on at all. If it is not this, it is that he wants to make City manager, Roberto Mancini, angry.
To sum up, don't try to cover up something by nitpicking. He said what he said and you can't change it.
