Carlos Tevez set to retire this year
"This is the last year of my (Boca) contract and I think it will also be my last year as a player," the 34-year-old told Argentina's TyC Sports. Tevez made only 20 league appearances for Boca in 2018, often as a substitute, and scored just six top-flight goals.
The former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus forward is upbeat about working with Boca's new head coach Gustavo Alfaro, having fallen out of favour under Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who left the club in December to join LA Galaxy. "He (Alfaro) is trying to give me back the joy I need to play football again," Tevez said. "I want to feel important. He wants me to be the old Tevez."
