Carlos Tevez has confirmed that his intention to retire from professional football once his contract with Boca Juniors concludes in 2019. The 34-year-old re-joined his hometown club for the third time after a short spell with Chinese heavyweights Shanghai Shenhua, where he was allegedly the highest-paid player in the world.
Since his comeback, Tevez has netted on four occasions for the Argentine giants but the centre-forward is now considering the prospect of retirement, he told Canal 13“I think that when my contract ends at the end of next year I will [retire]. Other times, I missed the club when I left, but this time it won't be the same. I won't go to another team and I'll retire with this jersey. "I don't want to retire and then become a coach or director. I must prepare for such a role first.”
