Carlo Tevez could be set to retire
Boca Juniors legend Carlos Tevez says he’s considering hanging up his boots at the end of the year.
“Retiring at the end of the year is a possibility,” he said. “I’m going to think about it. It’s a personal decision. I don’t know how much more I can give. The day-to-day life in this world is exhausting.”
Frustration with football in Argentina
Tevez, now 32, has been critical of the state of domestic Argentine football, something that has perhaps contributed to his frustration with the game. “The organization is terrible. In Europe you know on what date you’ll play each team for the first six months. Here you can’t plan anything,” he said.
He also claimed that the media place additional pressure on Boca, leading to unfair treatment such as the three-match ban he was handed earlier this month for dissent.
“The penalty was given to me by journalists, not the committee,” he said. “They pushed to give me three matches.”
An illustrious career in Europe
The striker returned to his boyhood club last season following a successful but often controversial spell in Europe. After establishing himself at West Ham – the club he joined in a surprise move along with Javier Mascherano in 2006 – he moved onto Manchester United where he won the Champions League in 2008. He later spent four years at rivals Manchester City before moving to Juventus in 2013.
