“It’s very difficult”, Carlos Tévez parodies won’t ever stop

September 29, 2009

Do you remember that match? It’s last season’s Manchester United 0-0 Arsenal, when ‘red devils’ became Premiership champions in their own home. Tévez’s interview for SKY Sports became famous in a matter of hours – the footage where we could see him speaking English (or trying to) travelled around the world, motivating many football fans in the globe to make parodies of his speech.

It wasn’t the first time thought. Back in the days, when he was in Brazil playing for Corinthians, he used to be in the spotlight and suffered tons of jokes from rivals’ supporters everytime he tried to speak Portuguese on telly. He (or the stand-in actor who impersonated him) even was the star in a famous Brazilian TV programme.

That wasn’t the last parody though – they became so famous that, even in Argentina, a band called the Tévez Reggae Band recorded a video where they show Carlitos’ worst handicap for playing football in the UK. He really needs to learn how to speak English – I’d say first of all he needs to learn how to speak Spanish.

    You know, credit to Tevez for staying classy after scoring V West Ham.
    Sort of made me feel guilty about telling Rob to have a go at him when he was at Old Trafford the other week.
    And he has a better mastery of the English language than half the people I encounter in an average day doing simple business transactions in America.
    Dude could easily have a back up job in customer service via tele helpdesk here.

    I won’t mind if Tevez celebrated if he scored one past United in the return match, at least if we are winning the game :)
    But he did show respect to W.Ham fans, and they applauded him in return, great gestures in sportsmanship manner, something Adebayor may be need to learn from him
    As for his English, no comments :P

    NO NO dont be kidded by a kidder

    yep he didnt celebrate..thats the least he could do. I dont think that makes him any more classy. I was there near him singing “ar-gen-tina” when his did that interview when we got the trophy. We knew it was the end for him with us and it was emotional. However the trash he has spoken in the press since has burned all of his bridges. He is dead to United fans now. We wish him luck in his new career playing for the Scum down the road.

    Oh and staying with us was not “very difficult” All he had to do was sign the contract. bye bye Carlos

    The Tevez Reggae Band clip is genius!

    I have had the song though in my head since watching it though which is slightly annoying!
