Robin Van Persie Can't Take Any More UEFA Champions League Knockouts, and Carlos Tevez Returns to Manchester City (Podcast)

The knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League are widely regarded as the pinnacle of club soccer. Arsenal forgot about that on Wednesday, and went all the way to Milan four nothing.

That’s just one of the jokes making the rounds these days. The Gunners were hammered by AC Milan 4-0, and the buzzards are circling around the Emirates Stadium. What does that result mean for the future of manager Arsene Wenger and star striker Robin van Persie?

Carlos Tevez has made his long-awaited return to Manchester City. Can the mercurial Argentine get back into the good graces of his teammates, and power City over the finish line? Does he even want to?

NESN.com’s Marcus Kwesi O’Mard is joined by Marcus Christenson from The Guardian to discuss the latest news on these fronts. Marcus and Marcus also recap and preview the other round-of-16 matchups in the Champions League.
