Carlos Tevez has snubbed Manchester City in favour of their city rivals, Manchester United for the top three defining moments of his career. The veteran Boca Juniors striker discussed the top three moments of his career with local media outletIntransigente. He was asked about his biggest career moments shortly after leading Boca Juniors to the Argentinian league title earlier in the year.
According to him, the title win with Boca Juniors ranks alongside the Intercontinental win in Japan with the same team and the 2008 Champions League title win at Manchester United. The 36-year-old said that these are the top three moments of his football career thereby snubbing the league title win at Manchester City in 2012.
Boca Junior’s striker Carlos Tevez has had a successful career and his recent performances for his Argentine club in recent weeks show that the ex-Manchester United and Juventus player is showing no signs of wear and tear even at the age of 36. In his prime, Carlos Tevez was one of the most lethal strikers in world football.
Tevez has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world from Manchester United to Juventus to Manchester City to Corinthians to Boca Juniors. He’s currently in his second spell at Argentine top flight team Boca Juniors whom he joined from Shanghai Shenshua of China two years ago.Continue reading
Boca Juniors player Carlos Tevez has credited football for the smile on his face as he continues to roll back the years with his form on the pitch.
The ex-Manchester City and Juventus striker is still moving mountains at the veteran age of 36. Tevez was the best player by a country mile at the weekend when he scored a braceto propel Boca Juniors to a 2-0 victory over Newell’s Old Boys.
Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio has dismissed the recent speculation linking the club with a move for Lionel Messi. The Argentina international recently handed a shock transfer request at Barcelona and reports have claimed that the Nerazzurri could make an approach to sign him, suppose he is available in the transfer market.
However, Ausilio has ruled out the chances and indicated that the club don’t have the resources to pursue the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, he told Sky Sport: “I don’t know where some ideas can come from. No coach, no president wouldn’t want Messi in their team. But the reality is very different. Our reality is a sensible transfer market.”
It has been over ten years since Carlos Tevez made that controversial switch from one Manchester side to another. We will never really know what occurred when he left Manchester United and join local rivals City – Tevez claimed one thing, United claimed another. However, one thing is certain and that is that Sir Alex Ferguson was wrong when he said that the Argentine was not worth £25 million.
He Has Had a Great Career
Tevez, despite his controversies, has had a fantastic career. From his early days playing in South America to his heroics at West Ham in the Premier League, all the way to when he was scoring for fun at Juventus in the Serie A, the Argentine has proved himself time and time again. At one stage in his career, he was the highest paid player in the world, albeit for a short period of time.Continue reading
Former Roma star Daniele De Rossi has admitted that he would like to return to Boca Juniors in a coaching capacity. De Rossi ended his association with the Argentine outfit back in January by announcing his retirement from the game. This has brought an end to a career that has been so successful over two decades. The 36-year-old was only able to make seven appearances for Boca Juniors after joining the club back in July. A one-club man until then, De Rossi had only played for Roma in 18 campaigns.
De Rossi may not have picked up a large number of titles playing for Roma, but he did win the World Cup with the Italian national team back in 2006. The midfielder has admitted that his playing time with Boca Juniors was incredibly short and he would like to have more time with the club, but as a coach. Now 36 years old, De Rossi is likely to be preparing full-time to be a coach. He made more than 450 league appearances for Roma in 18 seasons. If De Rossi does come back as a coach to the Argentine club, it will be interesting to see if he would retain Carlos Tevez, whose future at Boca Juniors is becoming increasingly uncertain.
Mario Balotelli could be set for a stunning move to Argentine football, as he has reportedly identified Boca Juniors as his next destination. The Italian footballer has been with Brescia since 2019, but he appears to have lost his place in the Italian team of late. The striker has scored five goals in 19 appearances for Brescia but his contract with the team comes to an end in two years. Rather than Boca Juniors initiating the contact, it has been Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola who has decided to offer his client to the Argentine club.
Balotelli will be turning 30 years of age next month and this presents a great opportunity for him to seek a lucrative move abroad, as there is still a lot of time left in his career. There has been a lot of negativity wherever Balotelli has gone in Europe. A switch of culture can bring about the best in the striker, as it would mean less pressure. This could lead to a better approach to training and his talent could be shone once again. Balotelli will not be the first striker to make the switch from Italy to Boca Juniors, as he will be following in the footsteps of players like Carlos Tevez.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that he is unsure when Sergio Aguero will make his comeback following a knee surgery. The Argentina international picked up the damage during the midway stage of the 5-0 Premier League win over Burnley and he has since missed two matches for the club across all competitions.
It has been reported that the Argentine could return in time for the Champions League round of 16 second leg against Real Madrid in early August but Guardiola has refused to provide an exact timescale for his return to the playing field, he told: “I don’t know right now. Once he has finished the surgery we will know the time Sergio will come back to play with us.”
Barcelona head coach Quique Setien has hailed Lionel Messi after he stood out in the club’s return to competitive action after a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Argentine was initially deemed doubtful ahead of last weekend’s game against Mallorca after he picked up a minor thigh injury during training.
However, Setien dismissed the suggestions in the pre-match press conference and Messi showed no signs of any discomfort as he dominated the proceedings against Mallorca. The Argentine bagged one goal and two assists in the 4-0 triumph over the relegation-threatened outfit and that has ensured that the Blaugrana continue to maintain the slender advantage at the top of the league standings.
Kia Joorabchian has dismissed claims by Gary Neville that his client, Carlos Tevez, did not perform well when he was at Manchester United during a two-year spell. Neville recently criticised the Argentine striker for being unprofessional during his time with United. However, Manchester United were quite successful during this period after picking up successive Premier League titles and one Champions League medal. Despite the successes, Tevez did not have a good relationship with United towards the end of his time and he ended up switching to Manchester City, who were the arch rivals, in a very controversial move.
Opening up on the disappointment of seeing a Manchester United player join one of their fierce rivals, Neville suggested that Tevez was not showing enough to warrant a permanent transfer.Joorabchian, though, has come in defence of his client by saying that Neville have not studied Tevez well enough to comment about the striker. In order to prove his client’s professionalism,Joorabchian pointed out that Tevez has been able to pick up a trophy in every league that he has played. Even at 34 years of age, Tevez has picked up the title and has also scored the winning goal for Boca Juniors.
