Juventus haven’t reached the semi-final of the Champions League for 12 years, yet possess a number of players who have already lifted the trophy – Carlos Tevez is one of them.
Part of the Manchester United side that defeated Chelsea in the 2008 Moscow final, Tevez is one step away from reaching another final after his penalty gave Juventus a 2-1 lead heading into the second-leg.
Since his move to Serie A, Tevez has reinvigorated his career and has now scored eight Champions League goals this season. His overall performances against the European Champions was slightly nostalgic as he forcefully moved across the pitch, a facet of his play the Premier League became accustomed to.

Tevez has set a trend in England, with many South American forwards now succeeding in the Premier League, and they share similar qualities. Their sheer desire to have and fight for the ball is evident and Tevez has shown that age doesn’t curb such desire.
Fans on Twitter were certainly delighted to see a former great roll back the years. Here are the collection of the best tweets.
