Kia backtracks on Corinthians claims for Man City skipper Tevez

Kia Joorabchian has backtracked on claims he will bring Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez back to Corinthians.

Kia Joorabchian has backtracked on claims he will bring Manchester City captain Carlos Tevez back to Corinthians.

Joorabchian gave an interview in South America that suggested Tevez wanted to return to play for Corinthians, but the agent now denies that Tevez will move to Brazil in the near future and says he will continue to play in Europe for the medium-term.

"That has been blown well out of proportion," Joorabchian told ESPNsoccernet. "Let me make it perfectly clear that Carlos plans to remain in Europe for the next three years, minimum.

"After that, no one really knows what will happen. However, Carlos Tevez has great affection for his old clubs, and that includes West Ham as well as Corinthians and Boca Juniors.

"He would not rule out playing again for Corinthians on his way back to play for Boca, but I didn’t say this was happening now, or indeed in two years, because it isn’t. It should have been clear, but it hasn’t turned out that way, so let me state categorically that Carlos will be in Europe for a minimum of three years."
