Sergio BATISTA has come out and stated that there was a lot of pressure from the higher ups to include Carlos TEVEZ at the 2011 Copa America. Here's what he had to say:
"There was pressure from the AFA and politics involved to get TEVEZ called-up to the team at the Copa America."
On him leaving:
"There was pressure from the outside... I tried to handle it until the very end but it was hard and I left. The pressure came from the higher ups, pressure from the AFA and political pressure and yes at that time, I wanted to leave."
