Carlos Tevez announces retirement, confirms he'll go into coaching

Carlos Tevez has brought an end to his career as a professional football at the age of 38, ending his playing days with Boca Juniors.

The Argentinian forward enjoyed a decorated career in both South America and Europe, and was perhaps best known for his time with Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United.

“I’m enjoying my life, my family, my own things,” Tevez told America TV. “I played for a long time. I wasted a lot of time.

“I’m retired, confirmed. They offered me a lot, but it was a very important change for my family.

“As a player I gave everything I had in my heart, that gives me peace.

“I woke up one day and said ‘I’m not playing any more’, I called my agent and told him.”
