Argentine striker Carlos Tevez says that his big-money move to the Chinese Super League was "like a holiday".

Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has said that his big-money move to the Chinese Super League was "like a holiday".

Tevez moved to Shanghai Shenhua from boyhood club Boca Juniors and earned a reported £650,000 per week while in China, despite only scoring four goals in 16 games for the club.

The 33-year-old was criticised by fans in China, and by coach Wu Jingui, who described the forward as "overweight" and unfit.

"It's fine because I was on vacation for seven months," Tevez told Argentine TV when asked about his stay. "When I landed in China, I wanted to return to Boca."

Striker Tevez, who previously played for Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham United in the Premier League, is enjoying his third spell with Boca.
