Tevez and Balotelli “unfulfilled” by government back-to-work scheme

February 25, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Manchester City’s largely redundant strikers Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli have added their voices to criticism of the British government’s back-to-work scheme.

Burger King is the latest company to have pulled out after details of people working for free overnight at Tesco triggered public anger.

"Make sure all the labels are pointing the right way!"

Having completed his own stint of late-night shelf-stacking to help him get back to work, Balotelli described the experience as “as soulless as a team talk by Roberto Mancini”.

Tevez, meanwhile, was honest in what he gained from flipping burgers for hours on end for nothing in return by pledging that he would “consider putting in a shift at Eastlands every now and then if this is what an actual job is like.”

Manager Mancini said, “Obviously I’m delighted to hear that both of them are taking a new approach to football, but we’ll see how long it lasts.”
