Footballers can live without receiving a single paycheck for a few years. I feel sorry for the person who wakes up at 6 in the morning and comes back at 7 at night just to feed his family. Us footballers can make a difference." Carlos Tevez went on to say that footballers are not setting a good example for the rest of the world. Carlos Tevez added that things come easy to footballers, unlike the general public.
