Tevez considering quitting Argentina over criticism

Carlos Tevez has admitted criticism directed at Argentina's players led to him considering quitting international football.

Argentina qualified for the World Cup this week with a 1-0 win over Uruguay, prompting coach Diego Maradona to respond to a period of prolonged criticism of his tenure with some choice words in his post-match questioning.

FIFA have confirmed they will be looking into the incident and if found guilty, they could present Maradona with a five-match ban. And Manchester City's Tevez admits the majority of time international football does not put a smile on his face.

The former Manchester United and West Ham striker said: ''When I play for Argentina I spend more time suffering than enjoying myself. The fans insulted us, the journalists criticised everything.

''Sometimes I think about quitting the national team. Why should I come to Argentina and have a bad time?''
