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.

Tevez admits European return is a possibility

Carlos Tevez completed his move to Boca Juniors on June of 2015 as he made a return to his childhood club where he used to perform with during the earlier stages of his career.

The veteran striker is a consistent starter in Boca Juniors which is fairly impressive considering that he is the 2nd oldest player of the entire squad but Tevez has still managed to secure a consistent spot in the starting lineup of the manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Carlos Tevez rejects a £19.5 million move to the Chinese Super League

Carlos Tevez is a consistent starter for the Argentine club Boca Juniors and he has been performing with them since June of 2015 after having completed his transfer from Juventus over to Boca Juniors for a transfer fee of €6.5 million and so far things have been going fairly well for the veteran attacker who continues scoring goals and playing a big role at a competitive despite having reached a fairly elevated age.

Boca Juniors is the childhood club of Carlos Tevez as it was with them where Tevez managed to make his debut appearance at a competitive stage and he was able to do this at the age of 16.

When Tevez was 16, he made his debut for Boca Juniors when they faced off with Talleres de Cordoba in the Torneo Apertura and from there on out Tevez went on to make a total of 75 appearances while scoring 26 goals during his 3 year long stay with Boca Juniors.

During this time with the Argentine club, Tevez attracted the attention of Corinthians who signed him up for around $16 million and this is when the international playing career of Carlos Tevez kicked off as he went on to join a number of top clubs including: Manchester United, Manchester City and and his last European club was Juventus.

Even though the head coach of Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri offered Tevez the chance to continue performing with the Italian club beyond what his contract had initially stipulated, Tevez opted to make a return to Boca Juniors and now more recently, Tevez was offered the chance to earn £19.5m each year as the Argentine player just wants to play with his hometown club and it’s very likely that he will be retiring with them as well.

Tevez not included for World Cup qualifiers

The 2018 World Cup qualifiers are looming on the horizon and every nation is working hard to win their respective matches in order to have any hope of advancing to the next World Cup and Argentina’s schedule sees them facing off with Chile and Bolivia on March 24 and March 29 respectively.

Unfortunately for Carlos Tevez, he will not be participating in any of these qualifying matches as the 32 year old attacker just doesn’t have the same kind of impact and influence that he used to have some time ago.

Tevez is well aware of the amount of talented players that are performing in the Argentine national football team with performers such as: Angel di Maria, Erik Lamela, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Gonzalo Higuain and Lionel Messi just to name a few of the more renowned players.

With all of these figures in the Argentine squad, it’s extremely difficult for Carlos Tevez to find a consistent spot in the national football team of his country and considering that he is 32 years old, that’s a pretty elevated age for almost any player in the world of football. It’s been rumoured taht instead of even watching the matches, Tevez is off on a tour of Australia, promoting real money Australian pokies at Pokies Palace to football lovers across the world.

Carlos Tevez is currently performing for Boca Juniors but it’s believed that the Argentine attacker is not going through the best of times with his childhood club as he is demanding to his manager that he gets more free time or holidays as the veteran player is starting to feel burnt out after playing so much consistent matches non-stop.

Adrian Ruocco is the agent of Tevez and he revealed details concerning his client as Ruocco stated that there is a possibility of Tevez leaving Boca Juniors sooner than what his contract has stipulated as he said: “Carlos has two or three years remaining in his career and he could go to China or Saudi. He has to enjoy playing once more; otherwise he may want to leave in June.”

Paulo Dybala has been earmarked as the replacement for Carlos Tevez at Juventus

Paulo Dybala has been earmarked as the replacement for Carlos Tevez at Juventus, but his former Palermo teammate Franco Vazquez reckons that the 22-year-old may not be the like-for-like swap.

Juventus signed the former Parma striker for a huge sum of € 32 million along with € 8 million more in additional bonuses. Vazquez knows a thing or two about Juventus’ big-money signing after having played with him at Parma for the last couple of years.Vazquez and Dybala combined to great effect by scoring 23 goals in the league last season.

The 22-year-old has been riding on a wave of form in recent weeks. It has seen him score 7 goals in just 10 starts for his new club. As a result, talk has already begun aboutDybala being the next Tevez. Compared with the successful 2014-15 campaign,Vazquez has had a modest start to the 2015-16 season. He has managed only four assists and one goal in 14 appearances. This is pale in comparison with last season when his partnership withDybala saw him scored 10 goals and 10 assists in just 37 games. The midfielder is now looking forward to his reunion withDybala. Without the goals fromDybala andVazquez, Parma have been struggling closer to the relegation zone.

Carlos Tevez’s agent has apparently told Juventus president Andrea Agnelli

Carlos Tevez’s agent has apparently told Juventus president Andrea Agnelli that his client wants to leave the club and return to his homeland. Tevez has been linked with a move to Boca Juniors in the last six months. Since he has only 12 months left on his contract, the striker sees this is an ideal opportunity to seal a move back to Boca Juniors where it all began for him as a teenager. Tevez has represented the clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City in a strong career, but he has never stayed at a club for more than a couple of years.

The lack of stability, though, has not affected his game one bit. Last season, the goals scored by the Argentine was a major factor in Juventus winning the league title once again. They also reached the final of the Champions League. Keen to end the disappointing run in the European competition, Juventus managed to be the likes of Real Madrid along the way but they were beaten narrowly in the final by Barcelona. In his career, Tevez has won the Champions League once with Manchester United. He has apparently decided to bring his time in Italian football to an end after requesting the president for a six months ago.
