But Tevez has slammed PSG’s treatment of his former international teammate.
Speaking to TyC Sports:
He said, ‘I think Messi gives us all a humbling blow. Because if you told me, when I was world champion, that I had to apologise for going on a trip when I had a day off, I’d go back to Rosario and stay there drinking mate.’
‘You’d have to apologise to me! But Messi, the truth is, he puts the club above everything else. And I think that, in that case, you have to take your hat off to him.
‘Then we can say a lot of things about a club that didn’t really look after him. From the first moment he arrived, they didn’t look after him. That’s how it is.’
