Maradona urges Tevez to quit United

Published Add your comment

Argentina coach Diego Maradona has advised Carlos Tevez to leave Manchester United for Inter Milan.

Maradona was at Old Trafford on Sunday to watch United's 3-0 demolition of Chelsea but left without seeing Tevez in action as Sir Alex Ferguson opted not to bring the 24-year-old off the bench.

He told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport: "I saw the Manchester United match (against Chelsea). They won, but did so without Tevez. This situation is not good for him. For sure, certain things are happening which mean his departure is nearing. Italy, and Inter in particular, would be great for him."

He added: "Among other things, the fact that his contract is soon to expire facilitates a change of shirt."

Maradona also believes Inter would be a good fit for another Argentina international, Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.

"What advice would I give him? To come to Inter. I can already imagine the incredible partnership he'd form with (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic," he added.
