Carlos Tevez Completes Boca Juniours Transfer

Carlos Tevez has completed his transfer back to his boyhood club Boca Juniours from Serie A giants Juventus.

The former West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City striker played for Boca between 2001 and 2004.

Tevez returns to Argentina after nine years in Europe, where he won three league titles in England and two in Italy.

The 31-year-old scored 20 goals to help Juventus win a fourth successive Serie A title last season, as the Old Lady also finished behind winners Barcelona in Uefa Champions League.

Juve have already signed Mario Mandzukic from Atletico Madrid as Tevez’s replacement.

Boca president Daniel Angelici said: “It is a day of joy and great satisfaction. The return of Carlos Tevez in an extraordinary moment of his career is fantastic news for all partners and supporters of Boca and Argentine football. The presence of Carlos will give another leap in quality to the great squad we have.”

He scored 38 goals in 110 games during his first spell at Boca, where he won the league in 2003 and was voted South American Player of the Year for three straight seasons.

He was at Brazilian side Boca Junior during the 2005 season before signing for West Ham the following year.

Tevez came off from the bench to score the match-winning penalty in Argentina’s 5-4 penalty win over Colombia in the quarter-final of the Copa America on Friday.

Tevez had been linked with Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Paris St-Germain.
