If Carlos Tevez wants to be a starter for Manchester United, he needs to be more clinical in front of goal. Against Danish side Aalborg on Wednesday night in the Champions League, Tevez blew several chances to put the game out of the gutsy Aalborg’s reach. Instead the match ended 2-2, securing United’s position as the winner of the group, but leaving a lot to be desired regarding Tevez’s form.
The night started well for Tevez when he scored in the third minute after a beautiful link-up play from Wayne Rooney to Ryan Giggs, who flipped the ball into Tevez’s path where the Argentine struck a beautiful goal.
For the remainder of the match, however, Tevez’s form soured as he wasted chance after chance in front of goal. Sure, no one is perfect, but I believe Berbatov would have taken better advantage of the opportunities that Tevez had and, in doing so, could have easily scored a hat trick.
Based on this performance, Dimitar Berbatov should be the starter against Spurs this weekend. In the meantime, Tevez needs to continue sharpening his skills and his time will come.
