Carlos Tevez confessed “this is the best form of my career” after his ninth Juventus goal in 10 Serie A games.
The striker found the net in a 3-0 victory away to Lazio, making him Capocannoniere just days after returning to Argentina duty for the first time in three years.
“I expected this performance, although it was the first game after the international break and we couldn’t afford to get this wrong after last time,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
Tevez was referring to their draw at Sassuolo, which followed the last break for international duty.
This week Juan Sebastian Veron said Tevez has never been so strong. Does he agree?
“I am at a great club, I am happy playing my football and I am giving my all on the field. I do agree, this is the best form of my career.”
Now the attention goes to the Champions League, as qualification hangs in the balance.
“There’s no harm in dreaming. First we need to play Malmoe, then we’ll see where we are. We have to play the same way we did against Parma and Lazio, as with that level of performance it’s tough for us to lose.”
