Juventus forward Carlos Tevez says he has no plans to follow Argentina at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
The 30-year-old seems set to miss out on a place in Alejandro Sabella’s 23-man squad for the tournament but refused to criticise the tactician for his exclusion.
“No, I don’t think I will go to watch Argentina’s matches,” Tevez said to Cronica. “I have plans to go to Disneyland with my wife and children instead!
“When I was at Corinthians I had a great relationship with Sabella. We never had any problems and the respect was always there.
“Everyone asks me why I’m not in the national team, but I can’t answer that because it would not be respectful. It’s just the way things are.
“I think the CT is just happy with the players he has called up and that’s it. If he wins, everyone will thank him for his decisions.
“Because of this it wouldn’t be right if I were called up now.
“I haven’t been part of the journey. So once I have finished celebrating Juve’s victories at the end of the season, I will go to Disneyland.”
