Carlos Tevez is not concerned by his on-going European drought ahead of Lyon-Juventus. “The goals will come.”
The first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals kicks off at the Stade de Gerland on Thursday at 20.00 UK time.
Tevez is top scorer in Serie A with 18 goals, but hasn’t found the net in any European tournament since Manchester United faced Porto in the 2008-09 Champions League.
“I’m calm because sooner or later the goals will come, but it’s not an obsession for me,” Tevez told UEFA.com.
Apache won’t be in action for tonight’s Serie A trip to Napoli, as he sits out a ban.
“Unfortunately I can’t play at the weekend but it gives me an opportunity to prepare myself in the best possible manner for Lyon. I’ll be able to recharge the batteries before travelling to France.
“It’s been difficult. We’re playing lots of games and it’s not always possible to play at a high tempo. Still, we managed to win and that’s what counts. We can’t do any more than this.”
