Following his time at Rosario Central, where he concluded with a record of six victories, eleven draws, and seven defeats, Tevez had his second coaching stint.

A club statement was posted by Independiente on their official X account:

“We want to inform you that Carlos Tevez has informed the president of the Club, Nestor Grindetti, on behalf of the Board of Directors, that he has taken the decision not to continue as coach of the professional team after the match we will play tomorrow (Sunday) against Platense for the second round of the Professional Football League.

“From the Institution, we want to highlight the commitment and professionalism of the outgoing coaching staff, who bravely took charge of a complex sporting moment and have led us towards a path of new objectives that we will try to achieve in the short term.”
