Carlos Tevez to quit the game at the age of 38.
The Argentinian, who also played for West Ham, hasn’t had a team since 2021, and he has now ended his career because his father died last year.
“I have retired, that is a fact,” he told America TV in an interview.
“They gave me a lot of things, some of which came from the United States. But that’s it, I’ve done all I can.
“It was hard to play last year, but I was able to see my old man. I quit playing music because I lost my biggest fan.”
Tevez moved to England in 2006. He signed with West Ham in a controversial deal that also included Javier Mascherano. On the last day of the season, he helped West Ham stay in the league.
He went on loan to Manchester United in 2007 and played there for 99 games, scoring 34 goals and winning two Premier League titles. After that, he moved across the city to the Etihad Stadium.
More success came his way at City, where he won another Premier League title and an FA Cup. In all, he scored 73 goals in 148 games over four seasons and made 148 appearances.
He left for Juventus in 2013 and spent some time in China. In between, he played for Boca Juniors, the team he grew up with. He left Boca for the last time in 2021.
Tevez scored 13 goals in 76 games for Argentina and won an Olympic gold medal in 2004. The MLS wanted him to keep playing, but he hung up his boots.
