Tevez quits Argentina football, keeps quiet on retirement

Veteran Argentina great Carlos Tevez announced on Friday he was quitting Boca Juniors and would no longer play football in his homeland, but stopped short of officially retiring, reports AFP. The 37-year-old said he was leaving Boca, his beloved home club -- he said "my blood isn't red, it's blue and yellow" -- to spend more time with his family. "My career in Argentina is finished. I always said the only club I would ever play for (here) is Boca, without a doubt," said Tevez at a press conference at the club's head office. The former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus forward lost his adoptive father Segundo Tevez in February after he contracted Covid-19 at age 58. When asked if he could find a new club abroad, Tevez merely replied he didn't know what he would do next.
