Carlos Alberto Martinez Tevez (born 5 February 1984),better known as Carlos Tevez is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Italian club Juventus. His energy and goal scoring rate made him an indispensable player for the club in the eyes of fellow players and media alike.
He began his career with Boca Juniors, winning the Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup in 2003 before moving to Corinthians in what was the biggest transfer by a South American club. Tevez then moved to West Ham United, helping the team remain in the Premier League in his only season, and then won two league titles and the UEFA Champions League with Manchester United. In the 2009 summer transfer window he joined Manchester City, becoming the first player to move between the two rival clubs since Terry Cooke in 1999. After a dispute with manager Roberto Mancini due to allegedly refusing to play, Tevez missed four months of the 2011–12 season, returning to help City win the league title. In 2013, he joined Juventus for an initial €10 million.
His career has been dogged by a long-standing relationship with Media Sports Investment (along with Just Sport), the company which owned his rights.This eventually resulted in West Ham United being fined over issues regarding third-party ownership.
Tevez has made 64 appearances for the Argentina national team from his debut in 2005, scoring 13 goals. A gold medal winner at the 2004 Olympics, he also played at two World Cups and three Copa America tournaments.
