Tevez wanted starting role

Tevez believes his involvment from the start might have altered the result.

Barcelona won the game 2-0 after goals by Samuel Eto’o and Lionel Messi.

He said in the Daily Mirror: “I wanted to play in the starting line-up in Rome but that decision was down to the coach.

“But with a strategy more attacking in the first minute then perhaps the result would have been different.

“It has not been a good time for me because I believe that I should have played more minutes. My future will now be decided. My agents are negotiating and I am waiting to hear some news.”
