Buenos Aires (Argentina): Carlos Tevez captained his boyhood club Boca Juniors to the Argentine Primera Division title on Sunday, the eighth league crown of the former Juventus and Pemier League striker’s career.
Tevez, who played for Boca when they won their last national crown in 2003 before moving to Europe, returned to the Buenos Aires side in July. “I came back to feel this again” the 31-year-old said after former Lyon defender Fabian Monzon’s 42nd minute goal earned Boca a 1-0 win over Tigre and their 31st title with a game to spare in the current season.
Boca are six points clear at the top of the table of San Lorenzo, the side supported by Pope Francis, and eight points ahead of Rosario Central.
For Boca, the title is a welcome boost after a year when they had to sit and suffer as arch rivals River Plate scooped up the league title, Copa Sudamericana, Copa Libertadores and South American SuperCup. Tevez arrived back at Boca after helping Juventus into last season’s Champions League final against Barcelona....
