Carlos Tevez is a proven champion: Copa Libertadores winner with Boca Juniors in 2003, Champions League winner with Manchester United in 2008, consistent performer for Argentina and now Italian Super Cup winner with Juventus, the 30-year-old has success wherever he goes.
Born in Ciudadela in 1984, the Argentine frontman began his professional career with Boca Juniors at 17 and soon became a regular fixture there, netting a total of 26 strikes in 75 league appearances.
A big-money move to Brazilian Serie A club Corinthians followed in 2005, where he skippered the team to a domestic league title and received the Brazilian championship's player of the year award in 2005, the first foreigner to do so since 1976.
In August 2006, Tevez opted for a new challenge in the English Premier League, where he was tasked with preserving West Ham’s top-flight status. He achieved that in style by scoring a historic winner away at Manchester United on the last day of the season.
The following summer saw the Argentine forward join Manchester United, and he scored from the spot in a dramatic Champions League final 6-5 penalty shootout win over Chelsea to secure the double for the Red Devils.
Tevez moved to Manchester City during the 2009/10 season and his impact at the Etihad Stadium was instant. He endeared himself to the fans with a stunning haul of 43 Premier League goals in his first two campaigns and called an end to his seven-year stay in England 12 months after forming part of the Blues' first top-flight title-winning side in 44 years.
He made an instant impact in his first season at Juventus, scoring 19 goals in 31 Serie A appearances during the team’s record-breaking charge to a historic third Scudetto success.
On an international level, he burst onto the scene during his country's participation in the 2004 Olympic Games football tournament, notching eight goals in six appearances as Argentina scooped gold in Athens.
After breaking through to the full Argentina side, Tevez made 64 appearances for the La Albiceleste, featuring in both the 2006 and 2010 World Cups and registering a total of 13 strikes.
