Carlos Tevez has described his stint in the Chinese Super League as “like a holiday” after returning to Boca Juniors.
The 33-year-old joined Shanghai Shenhua in December 2016 and was the highest-paid professional footballer in the world.
He scored just four goals in 16 games and was hit with criticism surrounding his application and commitment to the club.
"I was on holiday for seven months in China," the former Argentina international joked to TyC Sports.
"It's fine for the Shanghai coach and president to criticise me, I didn't know what I was doing there.
"I know there are people who were annoyed by how I left, but that's normal. I was not in a position to give 100%, but it was going to hurt the fans no matter what I did.
"Now the fans will see me again with the Boca shirt and they will be excited and happy."
