MOST COMMENTED

In an interview with ESPN South America, Juventus forward Carlos Tevez revealed that he thought of retiring this summer before Juventus made an offer for him. The 29-year-old joined the Italian champion from Manchester City in a move that the Argentine says has reignited his passion for the game.

“There comes a moment where you get tired, you get tired of soccer,” Tevez said. “I wanted to leave soccer but then Juventus, one of the biggest teams in Europe, arrived. I had always said that I would retire at the age of 28 and I was close to retiring after the row with Roberto Mancini,” he said, referring to his September 2011 clash with the then-City boss.

“I spent six years in England and nobody would have given a cent for me to stay six years there,” he added. “I won the Champions League with United, the Premier League with United, the FA Cup [and Premier League] with City -- who hadn't won anything for a long time. I won everything.”

During the interview, Tevez also confirmed that his international career had come to an end. The striker scored 13 goals in 62 appearances for Argentina.
