Details:

Carlos Tevez is one of the Premier League's most lethal finishers, loved by Manchester United and Argentina fans alike, and respected by many more in the world of soccer. After completing a protracted and controversial move to Manchester from West Ham in August 2007, Tevez quickly established himself as a fans' favorite 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 has added the Club World Cup and League Cup to his trophy haul, scoring his first United hat trick in the process against Blackburn Rovers. And it isn't just United fans who hold Tevez in great esteem—he still commands a special place in the hearts of West Ham supporters after 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 at the 2004 Olympic Games, and is a regular in the Argentina side.
