After making a return to Boca Juniors in the summer, it did not take long for Carlos Tevez to open his account for the Argentine club.
His goal in the 3-0 win over Banfield ensured that the home fans had a night to remember after being in great voice throughout the game. The goal had little impact on the outcome of the game, but it brought a loud cheer from the home supporters who had earlier seen Perez and Calleri give them the advantage. Tevez’ return to Boca Juniors has been compared with the instances in which Alan Shearer returned to Newcastle United except that the 31-year-old did not cost closer to the mammoth transfer fee for Shearer in the mid-1990s.
Tevez’ exit from European football has been on the cards for quite a while. Even when he was at Manchester City, the striker was linked with a return to Argentine football. The time has now come for Tevez to dominate his homeland once again. After having helped his team achieve success in the Copa America, Tevez will be hoping to do the same in the upcoming league match against Unión Santa Fe. A party atmosphere is expected that this game where Tevez will be one of the favourites to open the scoring. Read more »
Carlos Tevez reckons Barcelona starts the favourites in the final of the European Cup because of their offensive line and if Juventus has to go anywhere close, they will have to play phenomenal Football.
Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez operate in the offensive line of Barcelona making it one of the most potent in the world.
To handle the trio has proved to be immensely difficult, almost impossible, for the teams in Spain this season, but, the European final brings a different sort of pressure altogether and Juventus is a high quality team as well. So, it’s going to be a different ballgame.
However, not many would disagree with Tevez that Barca look an invincible team on paper and will have an edge going into the Saturday’s game.
Speaking in the pre match media conference, Tevez, who would be Juventus’ trump card, said, “Barcelona is probably the strongest unit going around at the moment. Their frontline is lethal and there will be absolutely no room for error against them.” Read more »
Carlos Tevez spent over 6 years of his career performing in the Premier League as the Argentine player made his way through West Ham United, Manchester United and lastly Manchester City. All of these were the English sides that Tevez joined before eventually joining the Italian side Juventus.
The Argentine striker has enough experience performing in different leagues as he has been part of some of the major European leagues and according to Carlos Tevez, he believes that scoring in the Premier League is much more easier than in Italy.
Carlos Tevez said: “It’s much easier to score in the Premier League, where the ball doesn’t stop moving, the action is everywhere and the midfield is non-existent. Here you see a striker up against five defenders; it’s much more difficult than in England. The Italian league is of a high standard.”
The 31 year old forward continued on by giving praise to his teammates as he told reporters: “My team-mates and Allegri give me so much confidence. I’m happy with how the coach asks me to play. We made some kind of deal: when I get the ball I can do whatever I want but I have to perform very specific tasks in defence.I like being in contact with the ball. If you don’t give it to me, I’ll get it.” Read more »
Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has rejected suggestions that he has had a fallout with superstar Lionel Messi. This has often been speculated as the sole reason for Tevez not being in the Argentina squad despite his good form over the last couple of years.
The former Manchester City striker is the top scorer in the Italian Serie A and his form has propelled Juventus to the top of the table. Yet, he does not seem anywhere close to featuring for the Argentine national team. Messi continues to be the star of the show when it comes to Argentina.
Tevez has had an up-and-down time in football over the last five years. He came very close to sealing a permanent move to Manchester United only to land in the hands of rivals Manchester City. His City career blossomed for a few years before coming to an abrupt halt after a fallout with manager Roberto Mancini. Since his £ 10 million move to Juventus, he has constantly been linked with a return to his homeland to finish his career. Read more »
Paul Pogba could be on his way to former club Manchester United in the summer with Juventus looking to sign Chelsea midfielder Oscar as his potential replacement.
Juve manager Massimo Allegri has been on the lookout for a creative playmaker for his side from before the January transfer window. Speaking in December, the former AC Milan boss had said that the team is looking to improve all the time and a playmaker would not hurt his side’s balance at all. Read more »
