Shanghai (AFP) – Carlos Tevez has lost several kilos in weight and wants to prove himself to sceptical Chinese fans who have booed him and labelled him “very homesick boy”, his club Shanghai Shenhua said on Thursday.

The former Argentina international has endured a turbulent 10 months in China since arriving to a hero’s welcome from Boca Juniors, missing around half the matches this season injured or unavailable.
