Carlos Tévez confirms his final retirement from football

The Argentine player Carlos Tévez, away from the soccer fields in recent months, definitively confirmed his retirement as an active player and the beginning of his stage as a coach in an Argentine television program.

“That’s it, as a player, I already gave everything, everything I had in my heart I gave, and I think that leaves me more than calm,” Tévez, 38, confirmed to the Argentine TV program Animals Sueltos, where he confirmed that he will not play again and that his next steps are to be a football technical director.

“If I’m already retired, confirmed,” said the former national team and also former Boca Juniors player, who announced his retirement from the Buenos Aires club a year ago, although not definitively at that time.

“I’m going to direct, I made the decision,” said Tévez, who thus culminated an important career in which he went through clubs on three continents, such as Corinthians from Brazil, West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City from England, Juventus from Italy and Shanghai Shenhua of China.

In his long career, Tévez won 28 titles, being one of four Argentine players to win two continental titles: the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores with Boca Juniors in 2003 and the UEFA Champions League with Manchester United in 2007-08.

West Ham wished him a “very happy retirement”, while UEFA posted his memorable Champions League goals on Twitter with the caption “Carlos Tévez retires at 38. Thanks for the memories”.

The “Apache”, born in the Buenos Aires town of Ciudadela, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, played 76 games with the Argentine team in which he scored 13 goals, including those at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
