Former Man United player Carlos Tevez explains his lack of desire for football while in a chat with ESPN after parting ways with Boca Juniors this year.
He admitted that the willingness and the feeling of passion for football is not as strong as it used to be before while playing at Juventus, Manchester United, Manchester City and his former club Boca Juniors.
The 37-year-old said his goodbyes to the Argentine club back in June. However, the veteran refused to officiate his retirement from football after his third spell Boca.
“I don’t feel the desire to be there when the ball is rolling. On Saturday I had a wedding while Boca were playing. And inside I thought that, if I were playing, I’d be missing the wedding,” the ex-Argentina international explained to ESPN.
“If that result (a 1-0 defeat to Gimnasia) happened like that, I wouldn’t go because I’d be angry. And I wouldn’t take any photos or have a drink; everyone would say Boca lost and Tevez was out partying. Football is like that.”
“Am I thinking about coming back? All my friends and family ask me, but I don’t know where to start. Right now I am enjoying the moment.”
“You start to wonder but in the meantime, I am taking care of myself. I would like something to grab my interest and motivate me or which brings something out of me. But right now, every time I watch Juventus, Boca or a team I’ve played for, I look inside myself for that fire to motivate myself to play for six months or a year longer. And I can’t find it.”
