Carlos Tevez has poured cold water on in a potential move back to West Ham by revealing that his heart is set on an emotional Boca Juniors comeback.
The 31-year-old Argentine is a cult hero at Upton Park following his one season in the claret and blue shirt.
He won the hearts of Hammers fans due to his industrious playing style, silky skills and eye for goal during 2006/07, before joining Premier League rivals Manchester United.
Now with Juventus, there have been links with an amazing return to east London in recent times, with the Irons thought to be eyeing a marquee deal ahead of their 2016 move to the Olympic Stadium.
However, Tevez has an eye on a return to one of his former teams, but it’s Boca Juniors, not West Ham, on his mind:
“My whole family and I are Boca fans and I want to play in that shirt once again.” He is quoted by talkSPORT.
“I don’t know when, but I will return home. I’ve been in Europe for many years and I need my family – I miss my father, my mother and my brother.
“I can’t complain as everyone has treated me well, but my mentality is Argentine and my desire is to go back to Buenos Aires.
Tevez has enjoyed a glittering career in which he’s won titles in Argentina, Brazil, England and Italy after breaking through with Boca.”
