CARLOS TEVEZ, one of the highest-paid footballers in the world, has been dropped by his club for being overweight.

New Shanghai Shenhua boss Wu Jingui is furious with the lack of fitness of star striker Carlos Tevez.

Tevez arrived in Shanghai from Boca Juniors amid much fanfare and a lucrative contract, reportedly worth £615,000 per week.

"And I've talked to him". He's not ready physically. "He's not fit to play", said Wu, who replaced Gus Poyet as manager on Monday.

"He is overweight, along with [Fredy] Guarin. When you are on the pitch, if you can't play at 100%, then it is completely meaningless". "I have coached lots of big stars, and my players are never picked on reputation".

But he has failed to impress in Shanghai, scoring just two goals in 15 appearances since his move.

Former Manchester United and Manchester City forward Tevez joined Shanghai from Boca Juniors, but has missed almost half his side's games this season with injury.

Unfortunately, Tevez's performances for Shenhua haven't made it easy for anyone to justify his wage packet; the 33-year-old struggling to get anywhere near his best form.
