Gerardo Martino doesn’t live in a universe where Tevez can play like Messi, with the Barcelona star out injured for Argentina.
Messi was sidelined with a knee injury last month, and will miss Argentina’s match against Paraguay, Brazil and Colombia.
Argentina’s problem increased when Aguero picked up an injury in the 2-0 loss to Ecuador. But Martino does not feel the pressure on Tevez will increase.
“Tevez cannot do Messi’s role because Lionel plays like a number seven and I do not see Carlos playing there,” Martino said.
“For Carlos it does not suit him at all to go to the wings. He can play in the position that he did at Juventus or how he does now at Boca.”
