MOST COMMENTED

Carlos Tevez was unveiled to the media on Thursday as Juventus’ new No. 10 after a $12 million transfer fee was agreed with Manchester City, his former club. The Argentine spoke with pride about being handed the former shirt number of Juve legend Alessandro Del Piero.

“The responsibility of the 10 is enormous,” Tevez said. “I already inherited that shirt from Diego Maradona at Boca Juniors. I respect it, it provides me with a challenge. I respect Del Piero, who is a symbol of this club and a great player.”

He added: “I chose Juventus because it was my dream to play here in Italy and the Bianconeri were the only club who really wanted me. Your football is one of the hardest and most beautiful in the world. I thank Juventus for working so hard to sign me and I thank City for those splendid years together. Juventus are a great side and that is the first reason why I am here.”
