Carlos Tevez Makes Final Decision on his Career

Former Manchester United, Manchester City, West Ham United, and Argentina striker Carlos Tevez has formally announced his retirement from football. The former 38-year-old Juventus player has not played since ending his third stint with boyhood club Boca Juniors in June 2021. Carlos Tevez said he had “given everything” in his 20-year career, but his father’s death last year drove his decision to retire, despite offers to continue.

The player also said: “I stopped playing because I lost my number one fan.” “I have retired, it is confirmed. They offered me many things, including from the United States. But that’s it, I have given everything.” “Playing the last year was very difficult but I was able to see my old man.”

The Argentine International also played for Brazilian side Corinthians and, in between two spells with Boca, Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua. In 2004, he won Olympic gold with Argentina in Athens, going on to make 75 appearances for his country by 2015.

He won two Premier League titles with Manchester United and one Champions League, before crossing to Manchester to join City where he won another league crown in 2012, despite missing three months of that season after a high-profile fall-out with manager Roberto Mancini after refusing to come on as a substitute in a Champions League game at Bayern Munich.

Overall, during his seven-year stay in England, he scored 84 goals in 202 Premier League games. Tevez elder brother died about two years ago of Covid-19 complications and now he is retiring from active football.
