Carlos Tevez returns for third stint at boyhood club Boca Juniors

Carlos Tevez is leaving the Chinese Super League and will play for Boca Juniors for third time in his career.

Carlos Tevez has returned to Boca Juniors for a third stint with his boyhood team.

The former Manchester United and Manchester City forward returns to the club after an unsuccessful spell with Shanghai Shenhua where, despite earning a reported £650,000 per week, the Argentine branded Chinese football as being 50 years behind Europe and South America.

The 33-year-old, who previously played for Boca between 2001-04 and 2015-16, was welcomed by a message on the club's official Twitter account, which read: "Tevez came home! Today he joined Guillermo in Cardales and has already trained with his teammates. £VamosBoca.''

The Chinese Super League club later issued a statement, which read: "Following cordial discussions between Shanghai Shenhua and Carlos Tevez, both sides have agreed not to continue the employment contract between the parties.

"The club appreciates Mr Tevez's efforts during the past season, and in particular his contribution to our victory in the Chinese FA Cup. We wish him well for the future."
