Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici has confirmed that Carlos Tevez will not be returning to his hometown club anytime soon.
The Shanghai Shenhua forward is currently back in Argentina where he has been allowed to treat his calf problem. The 33-year-old is expected back in full training with Shanghai on August 30th.
Tevez has had a tough period since his move to the Chinese Super League, and this led to talk over a potential return to Boca Juniors this summer. However, Angelici appears to have dismissed chances of that happening while tweeting a photograph sitting together with Tevez on a bench, with the message: “I spent the afternoon with Carlitos and his family after several months. We spoke about his present in China and his future. He is not coming back for now but I trust that one day he will wear the Boca Juniors jersey again.”
The former Manchester United and Manchester City star only joined Shenhua in December last year, and his representative Adrian Ruocco has revealed that he cannot exercise a release clause in his contract until he completes the first year of his deal.
