Maradona Welcomes Tevez Back To Boca Junior

Argentina and Boca Junior legend, Diego Maradona has welcomed Carlos Tevez back home as rumors of an impending return to the club heightens.

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.

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

“Welcome home Carlos Tevez,” Maradona posted on Facebook.

Tevez was in the Argentina squad coached by Maradona at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He is currently under contract at Juve until next summer, meaning the La Bombonera will have to trigger his buy-out clause to secure his return.

Tevez, who is currently with the La Albiceleste at the Copa America in Chile, 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.
