Carlos Tevez appointed coach of Argentine outfit Rosario Centra

Having decided to step down at the age of 38, Tevez is taking his first steps in a senior coaching role and has signed a 12-month contract with the club.

After four matches in the second leg of the season, Rosario is ranked 22nd in Argentina’s top flight, with 28 clubs.

Tevez announced his retirement from playing earlier this month following the death of his father. At the time, the footballer revealed that he had offers to continue his career, during which he made appearances for some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including both Manchester Club and Juventus, while he also had three spells with Boca Juniors.

“I’m retired, it’s confirmed,” Tevez told Argentine talk show Animals Sueltos. I had offers from many places, but as a player I had already given my all.

“My last year playing [at Boca Juniors] It was very difficult because he (Tevez’s late father, Segundo Raimundo) was brain dead. I woke up one day and said to Wayne (Tevez’s wife, Vanessa): ‘I don’t want to play anymore’.

“I called Adrian (Tevez’s agent, Adrian Rocco) in the afternoon and told him: ‘Look, I won’t play anymore. I’m retiring’,” he said.

Tevez made his international debut for Argentina in 2004 against Ecuador, earning a total of 76 caps and scoring 13 goals.
