Tevez defends Messi’s decision

Carlos Tevez has defended Lionel Mess’s decision to retire from International football.


The Boca Juniors player has stated that he understands the way Messi feels and that fans around the world should respect him. Indeed Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi has announced that he will not be playing for Argentina again following their defeat in the final against Chile. This was the second final lost in a row by Messi with Argentina, and he said that he had had enough.

However, there are many pundits that believe that Messi’s decision has nothing to do with Argentina defeat. They believe that the problem is deeper than what many people believe. For Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi has problems with the Argentina Football Association, and this is the main reason why he has decided to stop playing for the national team.

Carlos Tevez stated that the Argentina Football Federation is currently in a mess and does not do anything in order to help the players. He believes that Lionel Messi has had enough of this situation, and this is why he has taken this decision. For Tevez, all the Argentina players are motivated to play for their team and to represent the country, but the federation is not doing anything to help them.

CHELSEA TO UNDERGO CHANGES AS CONTE RESUMES

After the exit of Italy from the Euro 2016, the new coach of Chelsea said he would take just one break before resuming at the club to start a new phase.


As the brilliant Italian tactician takes over, a lot of changes are expected at the club going into the new season. The coach took a team of decent players far at the Euro 2016 following amazing tactical discipline instilled in the team. With a better crop of players at Stamford Bridge, there is the hope that the coach would do more to see the club return back to winning ways after a disappointing season.

As he resumes, there are a lot of possible changes that could happen in the new season. One of which is a change in formation. The coach who could employ the 3-5-2 formation would need a lot of time or changes to be successful, and at Chelsea time isn’t a luxury. The issue of full backs at Stamford Bridge has been a long time issue. Different coaches have tried various players with only few have relative success. If ‘wing backs’ are employed, it would mean changes for the current crop of players. The likes of Kenedy and Baba Rahman would likely get more playing time due to their ability to contribute to the attack as well as defend. Kenedy had a few great moments in the last season as he showed he could provide the needed thrust for the attack as well as defend when required. He might struggle a bit solely as a left back but he would be a good fit as a wing back. Read more CHELSEA TO UNDERGO CHANGES AS CONTE RESUMES

Carlos Tevez has been a forgotten man

Carlos Tevez has been a forgotten man on the international scene for quite a while now.


However, he has just been named in the preliminary squad to take on Panama, Bolivia, and defending champion Chile      in the Copa America Centenario, which starts on June 3. The tournament takes place in the United States. After having just won the title, Chile will be going into the tournament in buoyant mood. However, the likes of Argentina will be the favourites due to the significantly better quality of players, which has just been enhanced by Tevez’ inclusion.

The 32-year-old recently returned with the South American football and has been a star for Boca Juniors so far. Despite the club struggling in the mid-table of the Argentine league, Tevez has done his reputation no harm by scoring four goals in 11 games. Even though this may seem low compared with the goals to game ratio of stars like Lionel Messi, Tevez has never been about only scoring goals. He has always offered much more to the team with his tireless work rate throughout the 90 minutes. Chile were able to get success in the previous Copa America largely because of the home advantage. Many felt that a player like Tevez would have negated the advantage to some extent. Read more Carlos Tevez has been a forgotten man

Boca Juniors helped Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form

Boca Juniors moved to the top of their group in the Copa Libertadores after a 6-2 win over Deportivo Cali.


This appeared to be the perfect match for Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form. After all, the opposition were reduced to 10 men during the 90 minutes. Tevez took full advantage of the mediocre form of the opponents to score a brace. Finishing top of the group gives a big advantage way into the knockout stages. Only the top two positions will be to qualify for the next round. Racing Club have come as the group’s second placed outfit.

After starting the Copa Libertadores campaign in disappointing fashion, Boca Juniors could not have wished for a better finish. They started the campaign with two consecutive draws, which meant that Bolívar were top of the table after the opening two games. Hence, there was a real pressure upon Boca Juniors to get a win from the game. Victory would move them closer towards the prospect of reaching the next round without any hiccups. However, the first half of the game did not suggest any good result for the home team, who went into the break at 2-2. Read more Boca Juniors helped Carlos Tevez to improve his goalscoring form

Carlos Tevez says that Atletico Madrid tried to sign him

Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez says that Atletico Madrid tried to sign him when he left Italian outfit Juventus in the summer.

After more than five years in European football playing for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and Juventus, the Argentine striker returned to his home country by joining the club where he started his career. Tevez began his professional career in 2001 with Boca Juniors and he says that it was very tough to turn down the Argentine club when they came calling for his services. Instead of burdening his former club with a lot of transfer fee, Tevez decided to join Boca as a free transfer after leaving Juventus at the end of his contract.

Since he was a free transfer, Tevez was an attractive option for several clubs especially in Europe. The 32-year-old has now revealed that Atletico Madrid were one of the clubs interested in signing him. He has revealed conversations with Diego Simeone, who was very keen on adding him along with the existing strikeforce of Jackson Martinez and Fernando Torres. The workrate shown by Tevez throughout his career is an attribute that appeals to Simeone. Tevez claims that he would have moved to the Spanish club had it not been for the entrance of Boca Juniors into the picture. Read more Carlos Tevez says that Atletico Madrid tried to sign him

Carlos Tevez return to Argentine football

Carlos Tevez is the biggest absentee from Argentina’s latest squad for the World Cup qualifying matches.

Manager Gerardo Martino was expected to pick the former Manchester City and Juventus forward, but this has not been the case. Tevez recently returned to Argentine football to play for his hometown club Boca Juniors. This was also expected to help him feature more regularly for the national team. This has not been the case in recent years due to the lack of places especially in the forward position. The likes of Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain, and Angel di Maria will provide valuable alternatives to Tevez.

It is only when one of these players are unavailablethat it leads to a spot in the team for Tevez. Even though the headlines have been around the absence of Tevez, other important players who have been not named in the latest squad include Ezequiel Garay and Fernando Gago. These two players that part of the team that came up as runners-up in the recent Copa America. Their absence may suggest that Martino is not entirely happy with the squad and he would like to change a few things in order to make the team from being perennial runners-up into winners.
