The 38-year-old, who revealed that he had offers to continue his career, featured for some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including both Manchester clubs and Juventus, while he also had three spells with Boca Juniors.

As a player, Tevez had already given everything he had

Carlos Tevez has announced that he has retired from football, explaining that the passing of his “number one fan”, his father Segundo Raimundo, was the main reason he has decided to stop playing. The 38-year-old, who revealed that he had offers to continue his career, featured for some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including both Manchester clubs and Juventus, while he also had three spells with Boca Juniors. Tevez hasn’t played a competitive match since leaving Boca in 2021, with his father having passed away in February of that year, and he has now confirmed on national television in Argentina that he has officially hung up his boots. Tevez said: “I’ve retired; it’s confirmed. I had offers from many places, but as a player, I had already given everything I had.”

Carlos stopped playing because he lost his number 1 fan

“My last year playing at Boca Juniors was tough because he (Tevez’s late father, Segundo Raimundo) was brain dead. I woke up one day and told Vane (Tevez’s wife, Vanessa): ‘I don’t want to play anymore’. “I called Adrian (Tevez’s agent, Adrian Ruocco) in the afternoon and told him: ‘Look, I’m not going to play anymore. I’m retiring’. They asked me all the time why I had stopped playing until I told them: ‘I stopped playing because I lost my number 1 fan’. I was eight years old, and he was the one who came to watch me. Why else have I decided to retire? I told them: ‘I don’t play for anyone anymore’. I think that (his decision to retire) was the only time I really thought about myself and I had lost my number one fan, which made me not want to play anymore.”

Tevez, who mutually agreed to end his contract with Boca six months early back in June 2021, is looking to remain in football, despite retiring from playing. The ex-Manchester United and City striker is now planning to become a technical director and will work closely with Carlos Chapa Retegui. The latter is a former player and coach of the Argentina national hockey team. “I am very excited about what we have with my brothers and with Chapa Retegui,” he said. “We have been working together for four or five months now, and the truth is that we are putting together a comprehensive project.”

It is unclear at this stage if Tevez will be involved with Boca or another club in Argentine football.
