Carlos Tevez set to quit Boca Juniors after fallout with club chief

Carlos Tevez is set to announce that he is quitting Boca Juniors.

The former West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City striker has called a press conference tonight to confirm his decision after a fall-out with club vice-president Juan Roman Riquelme.

The pair have been unable to repair their differences despite several attempts of Boca’s board to agree a truce.

And Tevez, 37, has cancelled his planned summer holiday to Miami so that he can make an official announcement.

It is a bitter blow for the Buenos Aires club.

It is not yet clear whether Tevez plans to continue playing.

Carlos Tevez is set to quit the Argentine club

He started his career with Boca as a 16-year-old and moved to Brazilian club Corinthians before a controversial deal took him to West Ham in 2006.

A year later he scored the winning goal at Manchester United to keep the Hammers in the Premier League.

But they were fined £50million for breaking rules regarding third-party ownership.

Tevez moved to Old Trafford and helped the Reds win successive Premier League titles and the Champions League.

But when United failed to take up a £30million option to sign him, he joined bitter rivals City.

Tevez’s capture provided the Blues with the spark they needed.

He captained the team to the FA Cup – their first trophy in 35 years – in 2011.

And despite going on strike after a row with manager Roberto Mancini the following season, he returned to help them lift the title.

Tevez returned to Boca in 2014 after a spell with Juventus.

He left the club to play in China, but was back again in 2018.
