Description

After completing a protracted and controversial move to Manchester United from West Ham in August 2007, Tevez quickly established himself as he developed a deadly partnership with Wayne Rooney up front. During his first season with the club he scored an incredible 19 goals, which were instrumental in sealing the Reds' Premier League and Champions League Double in 2008. In his second season at United he had added the Club World Cup and League Cup to his trophy haul, scoring his first United hat-trick in the process against Blackburn Rovers. He then found himself at the centre of another transfer storm in 2009, as his loan deal expired and newly rich Manchester City swooped to secure Tevez's services. City fans greeted the news of Tevez's signing with jubilation and he is swiftly becoming an icon at Eastlands. But Tevez also still commands a special place in the hearts of West Ham supporters - during his time at the club he scored an incredible winner against Manchester United on the last day of the 2006/7 season, which ensured West Ham's top flight survival. Thanks to his stints at Boca Juniors and Brazilian side Corinthians at the start of his career, he is also a popular figure across South America. On the international stage, he scored a phenomenal eight goals to seal gold medal victory for Argentina in the 2004 Olympic Games, and is a regular in the Argentina side. This is the fascinating stroy of the man feared by defenders up and down the country.
