Tevez' Words Lost In Translation? Yeah, Right...

Tevez' Words Lost In Translation? Yeah, Right...

It's no wonder that Carlos Tevez is such an egotistical idiot, fuelled by a false sense of self-importance, when he is surrounded by people like Kia Joorabchian who would go to any length to protect his investment.

After Tevez (you know, the one complaining about lack of respect and love shown towards him) called the captain of his former club a 'sock-sucker' (bootlicker) and a 'moron', Joorabchian insisted it was lost in translation.

'When you're a professional football player you have to have respect for your companions.

'If you don't have respect for your companions, and you don't have class, then you have to accept that they are entitled to say something back.

'Since Gary Neville didn't have that respect, I think Carlos felt that he had to give him an answer.'

But if you translate a slang terminology into an actual word, it may turn out to look like a very bad word. In reality, it might not be such a bad word.'

I'm no expert in Spanish but this is certainly rubbish. 'Tarado', the word Tevez used, can't really be mistaken for anything: that quite clearly means 'stupid', 'dumb', 'moron'.

And how was Gary Neville disrespectful? He backed his manager, saying that he cannot disagree with his decision. That's all. He NEVER said Tevez was not worth the money. Never.

Tarado as common slang actually usually means crazy but I hope he did mean moron. And as for Neville... the hand gesture was Tevez's response to the article he wrote where he intimated he wasn't 25 million... the radio interview was more in response to him giving him the middle finger.

Cannot disagree with his manager = Tevez is not worth the money. Can't you see it is the same thing? Perhaps you are the idiot here.

I don't think Tevez is self-important. He is INDEED important to Man City now. He was important to Man Utd in 2007/2008 season, no one can deny that. But Man Utd rejected him without good reason. What a joke.

Anyone fancy Tevez scores a hat-trick against Man Utd at Old Trafford? Very unlikely. But if Tevez doesn't waste his energy doing defensive work, I would fancy him the chance, albeit a "tiny" one. If he can score hat-trick at Old Trafford, it would be the "perfect revenge" in the history of football. lol

it obviously wasn't a mix up in translation, 'stupid', 'dumb', 'moron' is a perfect description of gar boy has he proved with his one finger jesture

I'm sure that something was lost in translation - I have it on good authority that Tevez actually said "That Gary Neville is a ******** ****y bollosking ***** eating little **** of a **** hole."!!!

All Neville said is the manager knows what's best for the club and the whole thing gets blown out of proportion.

It is none of Neville's business whether Tevez should or shouldn't have been signed by Utd in the first place, therfore he should not be speaking to the media about it. Naturally Tevez responded to what was said and his response was 100% correct. Simples.

See u on wednesday Tevez.Enough of talking by u and your agent.Hopefully we will shut you up once and for all.

The same thing should be said to Gary,he is one of our older players and doesn't need to indulge in such childish games.
