TEVEZ: JUVENTUS MAJOR HONOURS REVEALED
Carlos Tevez ended his controversial four-year stay at Manchester City when he joined Italian Serie A club Juventus in June 2013. The Old Lady paid around £12m to secure the transfer of the Argentine striker. Manchester City saved about £27m in total, wages and bonuses inclusive, by letting Carlos Tevez join Juventus.
Carlos Tevez made his Juventus debut as a starter in the 2013 Italian Super Cup clash with capital club Lazio. He scored the fourth goal in the 4-0 rout of Lazio to win his first major honour in a Juventus shirt. It was the first of three major trophies for Tevez at the Italian Serie A outfit. Frenchman Paul Pogba began the scoring for the Old Lady against Lazio midway into the first half before Giorgio Chiellini, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Argentine attacker Tevez scored three goals in four minutes to take the game away from their opponents. Tevez played the entire duration of the Super Cup encounter.
Tevez was named the Player of the Year in his debut season at Juventus after netting 21 goals in all competitions including 19 goals in the league. He was the third highest goalscorer in the league as Juventus made it 30 league titles during the 2013/14 season. Carlos Tevez was able to win both the league title and the Super Cup title at the end of his debut season at the club.
The third of his three major trophies at Juventus came in the Coppa Italia. Tevez was part of the Juventus team that won the 2014/15 Coppa Italia title by beating Lazio 2-1 at the end of extra time. Lazio scored the first goal of the game but could not hold on thanks to goals from Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Matri. Matri got his goal in extra time.
