When he was but a young boy, football superstardom a decade and an ocean away, Carlos Tevez must surely have dreamt of winning the AFC Asian Champions League. His mind cast forward to the immortal night, so humid and full of victory, when he would hold that hallowed trophy aloft to 7,379 adoring fans in a crumbling stadium on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
But, alas, that dream will have to wait... as Carlos Tevez started off his football career in China in the worst way possible, his team suffering a 2-0 defeat to the mighty Brisbane Roar of Australia, knocking them out of Asia's premiere club competition.
The squat Argentinian danger man, who now earns £614,000 plying his trade with Shanghai Shenhua, could perhaps apart some blame to his ensemble cast; seeing as he's now managed by Gus Poyet and shares a pitch with ex-Newcastle legend Obafemi Martins.
While Carlos' was not the greatest of debuts, there was happier news for former Chelsea man Oscar, who scored for Shanghai SIPG in a 3-0 win over Thailand's Sukhothai.
