Tevez: 'The perfect night'

Carlos Tevez celebrated “the perfect night” after scoring the Juventus winner on his Serie A debut in front of Roberto Mancini.

The former Manchester City striker was a steal at €9m this summer and netted in the 1-0 victory away to Sampdoria.

“It was the perfect night, as we won in a difficult arena and are very happy with the performance,” Tevez told Sky Sport Italia.

“It is not easy to get to know my teammates straight away, but I tried to do all I could for the team.”

The Argentine has now scored two goals in his two competitive games for Juventus, also finding the net in last week’s 4-0 Italian Super Cup win over Lazio.

Ex-Manchester City manager Mancini was in the stands at Marassi tonight, as he is a former Sampdoria star.

“I didn’t know Mancini was in the stadium. We have kept up a good rapport.”
