Ex Manchester City and Man United star player, Carlos Tevez has announced he’s retiring from football after he lost his number one fan, his father.
The forward player revealed that he had declined offers made to him to extend his football career but turned them down, choosing to retire at the age of 38.
Tevez revealed he had stopped playing football after losing his adopted father,
Segundo Ralmundo following complications from covid-19.
“I have retired, it’s confirmed,’ he said, according to the Mundo Albiceleste website. ‘They offered me many things, including from the United States. But that’s it, I have given everything.
Playing the last year was very difficult but I was able to see my old man. I stopped playing because I lost my number one fan.”
The Argentinian had revealed his struggles with weight gain, as he admitted to eating and drinking to much after leaving his former team, Boca;
“I eat empanadas and drink fernet and wine – whatever I want, I take care of myself a little, but I now have an extra three or four kilos. I get up a little late. I can’t imagine going back to training and running.
I used to get up at 6am to go training. I would arrive first and be the last to leave. But I don’t have the strength to do that now.'”
