Tevez: “I don’t miss football”

The former Argentina international has not been featuring since June after his third spell at Boca Juniors was cut short.

Carlos Tevez

revealed that he is not motivated to go back to playing professional football and doesn’t miss it.

The former Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City star departed

Boca Juniors

in June, whereas he is not hanging up his boots being aged 37 years old.

However, he is not in a rush to find a new club as he is having an enjoyable life off the pitch.


I don't feel the desire to be there when the ball is rolling. On Saturday I had a wedding while Boca were playing and inside I thought that, if I were playing, I'd be missing the wedding,"

the ex-Argentina international explained to 


"If that result (a 1-0 defeat to Gimnasia) happened like that, I wouldn't go because I'd be angry and I wouldn't take any photos or have a drink; everyone would say Boca lost and Tevez was out partying. Football is like that. 

"Am I thinking about coming back? All my friends and family ask me, but I don't know where to start. Right now I am enjoying the moment. 

"You start to wonder but in the meantime I am taking care of myself. I would like something to grab my interest and motivate me or which brings something out of me, but right now, every time I watch Juventus, Boca or a team I've played for, I look inside myself for that fire to motivate myself to play for six months or a year longer and I can't find it." 

If he decides to call it quits, it would be the end of an exceptional career. Carlitos started his job at Boca as a teenager, contributing to the 2003 Copa Libertadores and International Cup as well as other trophies. He also helped Corinthians win the Brazilian Serie A title before playing for West Ham in the European football.

He then featured for the Red Devils, Manchester City and the Bianconeri, who he departed in 2015 to make a return to Boca.

He also had a short spell with Shanghai Shenhua in 2017. His club trophies are 26, with league victories in four countries.
