Former Argentina, Man City striker Tevez confirms retirement


Former Argentina striker Carlos Tevez confirmed late on Friday that he has retired from professional soccer, one year after leaving Buenos Aires club Boca Juniors citing burnout.

The 38-year-old said on national TV show in Argentina that he would no longer play professionally.

Known as ‘El Apache’, Tevez began his career at Boca and had successful stints with Corinthians.

He moved to England in 2006, where he played for Premier League sides West Ham United, Manchester United and Manchester City, before moving to Italy to join Juventus.

He made 75 appearances for the Argentine national side and won an Olympic gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
