Carlos Tevez signed with Juventus some months ago but is confident that his team can not only aim and claim the Scudetto but also the Champions League as he spoke to the media in one of his latest interviews.
He told Globo Esporte: “Our biggest objective is the Scudetto. If we win the league for the third in a row, then we will make club history.
The Argentine later went on talking about what it feels like not only to play with Juventus but live in Italy.
“Juventus are a great club, as are Corinthians, Boca Juniors and the two Manchester clubs. I don’t see any difference. I am happy in Turin. It’s a beautiful city and the supporters have given me a lot of affection. Listening to songs in my name is always a pleasure.”
Juventus has won the Scudetto for 2 consecutive years and Teves is positive that they can secure the trophy another year in a row. They are at the top of Serie A with 34 points after As.Roma dropped 2 points during their 0-0 draw against Cagliari allowing Juventus to step it up and secure the top position of the Italian League.
Scoring 4 goals and creating 2 assists on the last 8 matches for Juventus, Carlos Tevez has quickly found his way into the Italian team by making an impact despite only being with the club for around 5 months.
He even recognition and praise from the former Juventus player Pavel Nedved.
“He’s a phenomenon,” the former Ballon d’Or winner told Tuttosport. “For what he puts on the field, he reminds myself and coach Antonio Conte of our times. When we got him [from City], we knew we could move forward with security’’.
“He is leader. Could he play with us in our great Juve team? Certainly: he’s a champion. He’s irresistible when he gets to chase the ball: he never gives up.”
Juventus definitely need three points from the next Champions league match against Galatasaray especially because they could only draw against FC Copenhagen in the first group match. However, they may have to do without the services of striker Carlos Tevez for this encounter given that the Argentine has suffered an ankle injury. He is a major doubt for the match. The 29-year-old suffered this injury in the 1-0 win over Torino during the weekend. This was the result of a tackle from Ciro Immobile. His tackle from behind earned him a yellow card, but Conte said that the punishment for Immobile should have been more severe.
Juventus will be coming up against a Galatasaray team that will be reenergised after the appointment of a new manager. After the sacking of Fatih Terim, former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini was appointed as the new boss at the helm. The club lost the opening group match 6-1 against Real Madrid, but they are expected to significantly improve from this performance. Tevez has been a crucial player for Juventus since making the £ 10 million move from Manchester City. He has scored three goals in the league alone, which has put Juventus in the third place.
If he plays, he will be coming up against his former manager Mancini. “During the first half of the Serie A encounter with Torino, Carlos Tevez sustained a lacerated and contused wound on his right ankle. The striker’s condition will continue to be assessed over the coming hours, but he remains a serious doubt for Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Galatasaray,” read a statement on the official website of the club.
Three points is a must for Juventus given that they could only take a point from the away match against Copenhagen, who will be taking on Madrid in this round.

Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez came extremely close to joining AC Milan a few weeks ago before completing his move to Juventus. The striker has been signed by Juventus for £ 10 million, and he is expected to create a major impact for Antonio Conte’s men. AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, however, has said that he wanted Milan to complete the signing of the player with whom he played for a few years at the Etihad stadium. Balotelli knows Tevez from his time at Manchester City and he is convinced that he would have certainly improved Milan as a team.
Tevez is one of the players who gives everything on the pitch, while his ability to score goals have been a major asset for the likes of Manchester United, West Ham, and Manchester City in the last seven years. Milan were in negotiations with City for a number of weeks before they pulled out at the last moment after appearing to have not reached the conclusion with the Premier league outfit. Milan vice president Adriano Gallaini revealed that the deal was financially not feasible for the club, which has suffered a lot of problems financially in the last few years.
Milan have been slowly recovering by trying to lower the age of their squad.
“I don’t fear Juve, I fear nobody. Tevez? He’s a friend and I told him to come to Milan, but he didn’t listen me and he went to Juve. If it happens, when we meet on the pitch, I’ll make fun of him. It has been good to hear this. In football you never know, but Milan is the club I have in my heart, they are a good club with really good supporters. Now I feel good here and I’ll stay here, then, one day, we will see,” said Balotelli.
