Turin, April 16: Argentine forward Carlos Tevez, currently plying his trade for Italian Serie A giants Juventus, has revealed that he wants to leave the club and return to Argentina and finish his career with Boca Juniors.
Tevez is under contract with the club until the end of next season but according to media reports in Italy he has asked the club's hierarchy to release him after the season, dailymail.co.uk repored on Thursday.
Argentina's coach Gerard Martino has also claimed that any such move would not adversely affect the forward's career.
"The most important thing for me is that Tevez continues to play as well as he is at the moment, It doesn't matter whether that's at Juventus or Boca. Only he'll know what's best for his future," Martino said.
"I will say this, though: Juventus are a great team, but so are Boca Juniors. It wouldn't be a step down," Martino added.
The 31-year-old former Manchester United, Manchester City and West Ham United striker had always wished to play for Boca, but the sudden decision has come as a shock to football fans around the world.
