Carlos Tevez has revealed that he is happy for his former international teammate Lionel Messi following his latest achievement of winning the COPA America title with Argentina. The former Manchester City striker has never hidden his desire to see Messi succeed with the Argentina national team and he has now expressed his excitement to see that what he had been hoping for has finally come to pass. Argentina set up a final clash with Brazil after their impressive run in the tournament that saw Messi play his role as their key player as he topped the charts in terms of the number of goals scored, assists provided, and some other areas.
Former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has tipped his country Argentina to go as far as reaching the final of this year's Copa America tournament and also winning it as well. Tevez has been granting interviews recently about his career for both during his time at the different clubs he played for and when he donned the Argentine shirt as well. One of the topics he recently spoke on was the country's chances at finally lifting the Copa America trophy after several years of attempting but failing.
One of the most talked-about topics in the history of football is the comparison between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The two superstars have done more than enough to cement their status as the two best players in the history of football and only a few or nobody will argue against that fact. However, the topic that will spark major debate is the one about which of the two players is better than the other.
Ronaldo and Messi have had remarkable careers and have enjoyed huge successes in the sport both individually and with their respective teams in the last decades and it is still a little difficult to point out which one of the two stars has had a better footballing career than the other one.
Just when it looks like Barcelona captain Lionel Messi would be making up his mind to remain at the Spanish La Liga giants, another report would emerge from somewhere else claiming that his intention is to leave the club. Messi's future has been a huge topic of discussion since last summer and he has left many guessing where he will be playing his football next season.
The player himself has not helped matters much after choosing to remain tight-lipped about his future but he has, however, shown some signs of willingness to remain at the Camp Nou with a couple of fine performances at the Spanish club. The Argentine superstar has unsurprisingly been the club's best player this season and has the most goals and assists for Barca even though they have fallen behind in the title race after their most recent league defeat at home against relegated side Eibar.
Although every other player vs player argument in world football has been overshadowed and outshine by the one between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, one of the other major player comparisons is the one between Carlos Tevez and Sergio Agüero. Both are strikers of Argentine roots and deadly in their prime. Agüero and Tevez both played for Manchester City and the Argentina national team and they both caused chaos against any defender they faced.
Former Manchester United striker was one controversial forward and he confirmed this after swapping Old Trafford for the Etihad at some point in his career. The Argentine star eventually decided that he needed to exit Old Trafford and he decided to create a lot of enemies by choosing to sign for United's arch-rivals and noisy neighbors Manchester City.
Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has charged the club to take a revenge on neighbours Manchester City by signing Sergio Aguero. Paul Ince wants a revenge after Manchester City signed Carlos Tevez under the noses of Manchester United over a decade. Carlos Tevez played for two seasons before he signed for Manchester City in a controversial manner in the summer of 2009. Paul Ince talked about Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero in his latest interview as monitored by the Daily Express. He wants Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to try his luck with the possible signing of Aguero. He also talked about how legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson tried his luck with Eric Cantona while the Frenchman was on the books of rivals Leeds United.
Veteran Argentine striker Carlos Tevez is currently playing for his boyhood club, Boca Juniors in his native Argentina and has wowed many with his continued efforts in proving that he is not yet finished and can still play at the top level for a little more time before finally deciding to hang his boots and bring an end to his fruitful football career finally. The former Manchester United striker returned to Boca after leaving the Chinese Super League some months ago and it has continued to be a lovely bromance between him and the club's fans because of the passion he puts on display when he steps onto the pitch.
Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has disclosed the advice that he was given by Carlos Tevez ahead of returning to Brighton. Alexis Mac Allister spoke to My AlbionTV about Carlos Tevez and Mauro Zarate. According to him, Carlos Tevez and Mauro Zarate gave him tips on how to succeed in the Premier League. Carlos Tevez and Mauro Zarate were teammates of the Brighton and Hove Albion player at Boca Juniors in the Argentine top flight.
The official website of European football’s governing body, UEFA, has formed a five-a-side team from the list of players celebrating their birthday on Friday, February 5 and that included Boca Juniors striker Carlos Tevez, who turned 37 on the said day. The Argentine international shares the same birthday date with former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Juventus attacker and Carlos Tevez shared the Manchester United dressing room for two years before Real Madrid swooped in on Cristiano Ronaldo in a transfer deal reported to be around £80m in 2009. The transfer was the record fee for a player at that time.
