Daniel Angelici is the president of the club and he said that Boca Juniors will be open to the idea of allowing Carlos Tevez spend the last few years of his career at the club where he made his debut at the age of 16.
”Let’s see if Tevez comes back next year, I’ll talk to him and see if it’s a good time. He wants to end his career at Boca. I am convinced he will join Boca when his current contract ends; he will end his career at Boca. He gave me his word he will return, but he won’t be our next signing as he is still under contract with Juventus.” Daniel Angelici said.
Not too long ago, Carlos Tevez responded to questions that were launched at him concerning where he would like the spend the remaining years and seasons of his career and the Argentinean attacker did not hesitate in saying that he would like to spend it with Boca Juniors.
“My future? I confirm what I’ve always said, that I want to end my career at Boca Juniors, but I am taking it one day at a time.” Tevez told the press.
The current contract of Carlos Tevez with Juventus expires in 2016.

Argentine club Boca Juniors have decided to part company with manager Carlos Bianchi after just five matches of the season. This decision has been taken because of Boca Juniors’ poor form in the season that could threaten their position in the league once again. Regarded as one of the top clubs in South America, Boca Juniors have not made a great start to the new season. The team has managed just two wins in the last five league matches and this run also includes three defeats. As a result, the club sits 14th in the table. Even though there is still a long way to go in the season, South American club usually tend to change their manager at the slightest hint of poor form.
The club president Daniel Angelici says that he has taken the decision along with the board of directors and it was very difficult to come to this conclusion. Apart from the poor start in the league campaign, Boca Juniors were also recently knocked out of the Copa Argentina. This was after a 2-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Huracán. It is understood that Boca Juniors decided to part company with their manager before the match against Vélez Sarsfield, but the official decision has come only after the match.
“We have to inform you of a very difficult decision taken unanimously by the board. First I would like to thank Carlos personally for accepting the challenge to return to the club for the third time. It is with great pain that we have taken the decision to rescind Carlos’ contract, but we understand that we have to bring this spell to an end and tomorrow start to look for a trainer,” said Daniel Angelici. Boca Juniors are unlikely to have a new manager before the Copa Sudamericana match against Rosario Central.

The manager of River Plate, Ramon Diaz, is happy with how his team has performed in the previous few matches, but, he has admitted that it’s close to impossible for them to win the league from here on.
River Plate’s performance in the first half of the ongoing season was pretty mediocre and thus, they got pushed behind so much that even with some impressive outings in the recent past, they have not been able to get themselves back into the race for the title.
In their last three matches, the Millionaires have defeated three fantastic teams in the Argentine top flight i.e. Lanus, Boca Juniors and Newell’s Old Boys. Now, in their next match on the upcoming Sunday, they will take on Belgrano de Cordoba.
Although, Diaz refused to say anything about what will be his first XI in that game but, it is believed that he would not make too many changes in the XI that had taken the ground first up in the last match against Newell’s Old Boys.
Speaking to the press yesterday, Diaz said, “We have secured three consecutive wins and thus, the spirit in the camp has gone high, but, it’s very difficult for us to lift the trophy even with so many positive results of late. However, yes, it’s important to keep getting those points so that we finish well.”
“In the top flight here in Argentina, you have to be alert all the time, otherwise, you go down. There is no room for complacency here.”
River plate has played 30 matches in the Argentine Primera Division so far this season out of which they have won 11, lost 11, while, the remaining 8 matches have ended in the form of draws. They have to play 8 more matches.
