WITH his £250,000 per week salary topping up his bank account and his petted lip topping up the hatred for him, it seems that Manchester City striker, Carlos Tevez is no stranger to the churlish attitude towards his employers.
An an exclusive interview, Argentinian cake factory manager Hernando Cream-Horne reveals how the Tevez refused to work for him during one particularly important shift.
"It was coming into April, which is our busy month, and Carlos worked on the packing line. I liked him at the start because he was quick and seemed determined to do a good job for us." Hernando explains.
"Then one day I was on the factory floor as we had a big order for fairy cakes and I couldn't see Carlos. I was informed he was in the canteen. I went straight to the canteen and asked why he wasn't on the line and if he would please hurry up and get ready."
Carlos Tevez was 15 when he worked for Buenos Aries Fairy Cakes after he was promised a soccer scholarship when he turned 16. However as Hernando goes on to reveal, his attitude was all wrong.
"He sat in that canteen with his arms folded and saying nothing. I explained to him that he was the highest paid packer in the factory but he still sat there. Other workers who were on their breaks just sat in disbelief at his attitude. I had no choice but to tell the other staff that Carlos was finished."
After a lengthy, drawn out dismissal Carlos went on to work at rival firm Cape Horne - Cream-Horne which was run by Hernando's brother Claudio.
Skip to events mid-week when Carlos, seemingly, refused to take to the pitch against Bayern Munich for Manchester City's Champions League clash and Hernando is not surprised. He said;
"He's a child. He earns too much money and he has a face like a scrotum."
