Carlos Tevez Brings Supporters Presents Home From Argentina
Manchester, October 12th 2011
Carlos Tevez has returned from his two week exile in his native Argentina bearing gifts for all of the Manchester City supporters that he feels he has let down.
Dragging a large suitcase into Eastlands today with a phalanx of assistants bringing in further carrier bags behind him, Tevez has repeatedly stated that he is “truly sorry for the terrible misunderstanding” regarding him seeming to refuse to enter the field of play during City’s defeat in the Champions League to Bayern Munich. He added that “it is definitely a misunderstanding. I didn’t hear my name being mentioned, and I presumed I was being asked if I would like a cup of bovril. That’s why you can see me shaking my head. It’s all quite simple really.”
Tevez has purchased a large selection of gifts for City supporters to choose from. He has stated that he expects the 400 cigarettes that he brought back as duty-free purchases to go first, with him willing to split the purchase into two separate cartons of 200 cigarettes. It is thought that these are “Benson and Hedges” brand cigarettes.
Further down the pecking order are several hundred Corinthians replica shirts which Tevez claims to “just having had lying around”. They have “Tevez 10” printed on the back and are interestlingly from this season.
Tevez is also offering 2 weeks of advice from Kia Joorabchian to the first 25 fans that request that as their gift, stating that his Iranian handler can advise them in all kinds of matters “relating to trying to get out of working for a living”.
Rounding out the choice of gifts are 1,000 sombreros, 5,000 hand-made straw donkeys and 40,000 tins of corned beef.
