Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo is in talks to sign for Boca Juniors where he would reunite with Carlos Tevez. Veteran Argentine striker Carlos Tevez is still an important player for Boca Juniors in his native Argentina. Marcos Rojo has not been in the Manchester United squad this season as he continues to recover from injury. He has been out of action since October 2020 due to a calf injury. Marcos Rojo and fellow defender Phil Jones are the long-term absentees in the Manchester United squad at the moment. Marcos Rojo is a versatile defender who can play as a left-back or in the left side of the central defence.
Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez has revealed his best players in one of his recent interviews with The Sun newspaper. The Argentine international revealed that his best XI has so much quality to the extent that he won’t mind being on the bench. Carlos Tevez was asked to name the best XI players that he had played with during his illustrious career. In his response, the striker named seven players from Manchester United without adding anyone from their city rivals, Manchester City.
Carlos Tevez came up with an emotional tribute to Argentine legend Diego Maradona, who sadly passed away recently following a heart attack at age of 60. The striker displayed an old jersey of Boca Juniors featuring the number 10. His display came after scoring in the Copa Libertadores match against Internacional. Boca Juniors ended up winning the match thanks to the clinical strike from Tevez. The 36-year-old scored just after the hour mark and he also kissed the armband which contained the birth year of the Argentine legend. Maradona is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and he began his career with Boca Juniors – just like Tevez.
Tevez was able to score this crucial goal against Internacional after taking advantage of a mixup in the defence. This was a classic poacher’s goal that helped Boca Juniors to come close to getting past the last 16 leg of the Copa Libertadores competition. Tevez is not the only footballer has come out with tributes for Maradona.
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.
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.
