Tevez: Scudetto three-quarters ours

Juventus forward Carlos Tevez believes that the Scudetto is now ‘three-quarters ours’, following victory at Milan on Sunday.

The Bianconeri came away from San Siro with a 2-0 result thanks in part to the Argentine striker’s fierce effort midway through the second half.

“My shot was unstoppable, Abbiati could not do anything,” Tevez has reflected in today’s edition of Tuttosport.

“And it was one of the most beautiful and important goals of my career. Also, because I could celebrate the birth of my son, the pacifier was for him.”

The 30-year-old was asked of the continued attention surrounding refereeing decisions in Serie A and if Juve are benefiting where others are not. 

“We do not care if others create a mess around the referees, because we win on the field. The Scudetto is three-quarters ours, after the success at Milan.

“Thanks to Roma’s draw, our victory at San Siro can really be worth the title - it is a victory worth six points, not three.”

The former Manchester United and Manchester City man considered his work this term with Antonio Conte.

“I have a special relationship with Conte, he was the first to talk to me to know me better and to bring me to Juve, he quickly proved that he had so much confidence in me and wanted me strongly.

“We often talk, he makes he feel important to Juve. Sometimes he compliments me and my character: ‘you’re a lion!’

“Other times he motivates me. For example, at San Siro, at one point, he asked me: ‘Carlos, are you there?’ I answered yes.

“And then I proved that not only with the goal. Conte and I have the same ambition.”

Despite Tevez’s form, he continues to be left out of the Argentina squad by Alejandro Sabella.

“I do not know whether it is a political choice, I think it is a technical choice.”
