When I arrived at Juve I thought I was coming to a completely different club than I imagined. After I realized it’s a very big club, but a neighborhood club.

Wearing the club jersey is very nice … Putting the 10 from Del Piero was an extra for me, ”admitted Carlitos.

I have always tried to do my best for Juventus. It was society that understood me when I said I wanted to go home (for Boca Juniors), close to my parents and siblings. At no time did he oppose my decision, for this I am grateful, to the people, to the president Andrea (Agnelli) ”, recounted that decision to return to Argentina in 2015 and after losing the Champions League final with Barcelona.

As I said before, at Juve I have always played with my heart. That is why it is difficult to find one. I prefer that of Borussia, one of the most important, and with that of Parma, because my father was at the stadium. I’ve always played for him. So when he came, he was my first fan. He came and I became the kid who played in the neighborhood, with him watching me play. That evening was very special, he had just scored a spectacular goal ”.
“The love that the fan has for me, what he gave me every day, was what I needed to give him what I gave him: my heart. The return to Juve brought very beautiful sensations, which I had kept in my heart. It is hard to explain… Here I left a little of my heart ”, concluded Carlos Tevez, who left a very pleasant memory at Juventus.
