Carlos Tevez's lack of fitness cost him a place in the Argentina squad for their friendlies in Asia but he is still central to their thinking, new coach Alejandro Sabella said yesterday.

"When I picked the squad, Tevez was not playing for Manchester City and gained weight," Sabella said. "Good players like him are always in my plans."
