Maradona reveals Tevez fear

13 January 2009 12:43
Argentina coach Diego Maradona believes Carlos Tevez is on his way out of Manchester United. The Argentina striker has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford this season following the £30million arrival of Dimitar Berbatov. Tevez was an unused substitute during Sunday's 3-0 victory over Chelsea and Maradona feels the South American's time with the champions could be coming towards a close. United have yet to take up an option on the striker's contract which would make his two-year loan stay into a permanent transfer and Maradona has spoken of his concern. He has also suggested that the player should look to continue his career in Italy with Serie A champions and current leaders Internazionale. "I saw Manchester United win without Tevez. This isn't good for him," Maradona Corriere dello Sport. "Certain episodes are certainly bringing closer his exit. Italy and Inter in particular would be excellent solutions. "What's more, his contract is running out, which makes it easier to change team."
