Fans of Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua are angry with their striker Carlos Tevez over his inability to score goals.

Tevez, whose itinerant career has seen him play in Manchester City, United and Juventus, has failed to fire because of injury and inconsistent form.

He has scored only once this season, although he did grab an assist in the 2-2 draw, and last month called Chinese players "clumsy" and "very naive".

Shenhua fans are fast losing patience with Tevez, who only moved to the Chinese club at the start of the year from Boca Juniors on a reported 38-million-euro ($42 million) salary that makes him one of the highest-rewarded footballers on the planet.

In April Tevez, 33, came under fire from supporters after being spotted at Disneyland Shanghai on the same day he missed an important match due to injury.

With big-spending Shenhua in the lower half of the Chinese Super League (CSL) following a home 2-2 draw with Chongqing Lifan, some have had enough.

Argentine media quoted Tevez as saying he could leave Chinese football at the end of the season and Poyet apologised after Saturday's stalemate, telling state media: "We did well in attack today, but made two big mistakes in defence and conceded two goals."

Tevez has a history of falling out with clubs and managers and one infuriated fan wrote on China's Twitter-like Weibo website after his latest underwhelming showing: "Tevez's attitude is the worst in the team's history."
