Former Man United striker Carlos Tevez plans for Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to play for the same team in a star-studded match of testimonials. Tevez played alongside Ronaldo for two years at Man United and played alongside Messi for the Argentine team.
The 36-year-old man who recently signed a six-month extension with Boca Juniors is planning a great testimonial after retiring from football, as he wants Ronaldo and Messi to be part of it.
According to him, he would like to include Ronaldo and Messi in their initial XI for their testimonial match against an opponent. He told the Argentine station Radio La Red: “If I had to assemble the team, it would consist of [Gianluigi] Buffon, Hugo Ibarra, Rio Ferdinand, Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Scholes, Paul Pogba, Cristiano [Ronaldo] , Leo Messi and Wayne Rooney.
However, Tevez was quick to note that he is not considering retiring from soccer anytime soon.
He said, “I leave all possibilities open [about my future], since I don’t want to be a slave to my words.” Of course, in Argentina [there is] only Boca [for me]. But I would like to go back to West Ham to be applauded for six months. “Or spend six months in Corinth. I will not rule anything out because I do not want to be a slave to my words.
Previously, former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez pleaded with other soccer stars to lose their wages and salaries for the year to help combat the coronavirus pandemic. Some players have already agreed to take a pay cut at one point to relieve their employers of too much burden during this mandatory vacation period. The 36-year-old Argentine who plays for Boca Junior wants his colleague to act in an attempt to help the underprivileged.
