TEVEZ MOVES ON

After completing his move from Manchester City, Argentine striker Carlos Tevez brought an end to his seven-year stay in England. During this time, he played for the likes of Manchester United, West Ham, and Manchester City. However, his final few years in England were marked by the troubles with him and the club. He came extremely close to leaving City during the January 2012 transfer window itself. However, he stayed for one more season and helped City finish as the runners up in the Premier league.

The club recently sacked manager Roberto Mancini and appointed Manuel Pellegrini in his place. It was rumoured that this change in management may persuade Carlos Tevez to remain at the Etihad stadium, but the striker recently completed a £ 10 million move to Juventus. After being unveiled as a Juventus player, Tevez said that the club decided to sell him after he made it clear once more that he would like to leave. The striker has signed a three-year contract with the Italian champions, who have won the league twice in a row.

Following this acquisition, it is believed that Juventus will now be focusing on the Champions League. Tevez has also said that he is extremely happy and proud to be representing a club like Juventus.

“I thank Juventus for the effort they have done to bring me here. And I thank Manchester City for the beautiful years they gave me. I talked to Pellegrini, telling him that I wanted to go away from Manchester City because I considered my cycle ended there. The number 10 shirt is an important responsibility because it was a number of great champions of the past, the last one was (Alessandro) Del Piero. For me it is an honour to wear his own shirt,” said Tevez after his unveiling.
