Shanghai home of Man Utd, Man City great Tevez goes up in flames

Carlos Tevez's Shanghai Shenhua's home ground, the Hongkou Stadium, has gone up in flames.

Shenhua have spent heavily on signing top class players such as former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus striker Tevez, Fredy Guarin and Obafemi Martins in recent times but their stadium safety seemingly still leaves a lot to be desired after their home ground caught fire on Monday.

The blaze began at around 8:30am China time but thankfully no one was hurt in the incident after the fire brigade contained the flames shortly afterwards.

It is suspected that the fire may have originated from the stadium's indoor rock climbing facilities.
