Golf & sun for ‘hurt’ Tevez

Buenos Aires: Carlos Tevez has admitted he is still suffering after being overlooked by Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella for the World Cup and intends to ignore the four-week long tournament.

The 30-year-old was discarded from the Argentine set-up after missing a penalty in his country’s quarter-final Copa America exit at the hands of eventual winners Uruguay three years ago.

He said he won’t even be watching when the World Cup kicks-off.

“I’m not watching anything, I don’t know how the (Argentina) squad is doing, I’ve not heard from the group, I don’t know anything about anything,” Tevez said at a media conference, at the Boca Juniors stadium, where he began his football career.

“I’m with my family, I’m playing golf, getting some sun. I’m isolated because I’m a footballer and it hurts.

“I’m not watching what’s happening, nor what’s going on around (the team), nor anything to do with the World Cup.” (Agencies)
