Carlos Tevez is back in football as head coach of the Argentine Rosario Central.
Former Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus striker Tevez, who began and ended his career at Boca Juniors, hung up his boots in early June.
His appointment to Rosario Central was confirmed on Tuesday when the 38-year-old got his first coaching job from the top flight club.
Tevez won a remarkable 26 titles in his career and is among only four Argentine players to win both CONMEBOL’s Copa Libertadores and Champions League, lifting the biggest prize in European club football with United in 2008.
He was a regular member of the Argentine national team for many years, performing alongside Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain, but missed the squad for the 2014 World Cup, where the team finished as second place to Germany.
The four-time Argentine champions Rosario Central revealed on Tuesday that Tevez has signed a one-year deal, announcing on Twitter: “Apachen will be the new blue-gold coach, after signing a contract with the club for 12 months.”
Before Tevez signed his contract, goalkeeper Gaspar Servio told TNT Sports: “For me, it’s something special that Carlitos [Tevez] can come here.
“If he comes here, the group will back him to death.”
¡Carlos Tévez er el DT de #RosarioCentral!
The Apache converts to the new auriazul coach, very firmly contracted with the Club for 12 months. Carlos “el Chapa” Retegui, will be an integral part of his technical job.#VamosCanalla pic.twitter.com/5APtaJjtiX
