Carlos Tevez opens the door to Boca Junior return

Carlos Tevez has considered leaving Shanghai Shenhua after admitting he could return to boyhood club Boca Junior.

In an exclusive interview with Super Miter Deportivo, the Argentinian football star has reiterated that he is happy with life in China, but has not ruled out a return to Boca Juniors in the future.

“I don’t regret anything, not even leaving Boca because it was the time to do so,” Tevez said.

“I wasn’t enjoying myself that much and I wanted to think about my family. I’m content and happy here [in China]. I get to enjoy my family and live peacefully.”

About a possible return to Boca one day, the struggling striker said: “I still haven’t made a decision on whether to return, although each time it becomes more difficult. In 10 days, I will be on holiday in Buenos Aires and I will see what I do.

I will go on holiday but I will not be staying. I have to return [to China].”

Tevez penned a two-year contract at Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua last December after agreeing with a mega money move to China.

There have been growing rumors that the 33-year-old is ready to quit Chinese Super League as things have not gone according to plan for him, who has scored just twice in 13 games.
