Tevez: It's harder to score in Serie A than Premier League

Carlos Tevez fired Juventus ever closer to the Scudetto last night and claimed that his Serie A goals mean more than those in the Premier League.

Juventus' 3-1 win over Sassuolo last night has moved them to the brink of securing the Serie A title and Carlos Tevez, who was on the score-sheet once again, insisted his form in Italy shouldn't be underestimated.

Tevez joined Juventus from Manchester City last June for a fee of around £10m plus £2m in bonuses and he has settled in nicely in Turin.

The Argentine star has fired 19 goals in Juventus' procession towards the title and has enhanced his fearsome reputation in Italy.

Tevez is just two goals shy of city rivals Torino's Ciro Immobile who has a total of 21 and leads the Capocannoniere chart.

Although Tevez remains frozen out of the national set-up and looks unlikely to make the squad for the World Cup this summer, he insists that his record in Italy should be respected.

"It's more difficult to score goals in Italy than it is in England," Tevez claimed in an interview with Mediaset.

"This is the case because against Juventus every team plays in a different way and they don't give you any space.

"It would be good to be the top scorer this season but the primary objective is to win the title with Juventus and everything else comes after."
