Tevez: I Sometimes Cry At Half-Time

Former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has opened up about the deteriorating health of the man he considers his father, saying it sometimes leaves him in tears at half-time during games.

Tevez's biological father died before he was born, and he has thus spent all of his life thinking of his biological father's brother, Raimundo, as his dad.

According to Goal, Raimundo spent 45 days in intensive care after contracting the coronavirus in September, and returned to hospital later after suffering a few more setbacks.

Speaking candidly about the situation recently, the Boca Juniors captain admitted that he dips in and out of the intense emotions that come with a matter like this, and said he sometimes even walks back into the changing room at half-time in tears during matches.

"It's very tough," Tevez told ESPN Argentina.

"I have different emotions. At times I am well and other times I go and cry during the interval. I can't explain it.

"These are difficult times. I go and visit my father, and then I have to be strong to play football."

With fans not yet allowed in stadiums, Tevez has not been able to experience the full encouragement of his club's supporters during matches, but a banner was hung up at Boca's stadium as a show of support to the striker.   

"That fills my soul. To enter the pitch, to see the flag, the banner," he added.

"The important thing is that I am strong and that is thanks to the people at Boca and to my family, who help me not to fall apart and to continue fighting. I'm standing, just as my family is, and we must continue."

Tevez has represented Boca on 142 occasions in three different spells to date, scoring 48 goals and assisting a further 26 strikes.
