Carlos Tévez is always more the chief of Juventus, returned to be an aggressive hungry bunch. The Apache is the leader: on and off the field. Wednesday night against Real Madrid he was the only one who did not blame the referee (accused by coach Antonio Conte of having influenced the game) but to pluck the strings of Juventus pride, stimulating his teammates to give more and more concentration. Wise words, wise enough to be repeated by the owner Andrea Agnelli, who reiterated the same substance on Wednesday night.
From words to deeds, Sunday afternoon against Genoa he was put in front of the group with a contagious competitive spirit. The wonderful goal was the culmination of a struggle and the provision of government, with some interesting duets with Fernando Llorente. Yes, he is the face of the new Juventus: “tremendista” and strongly competitive. A team who is not always beautiful, but is able to display an intensity that too often seemed to evaporate in recent times.
Furthermore, the Argentinian striker is Juve’s topscorer with 5 goals out of 9 matches with a high average of ball coverage and quality passes. He is also in the top five of Serie A's top shooters with 4 shots per game. Only Milan's Mario Balotelli, Bologna's Alessandro Diamanti and Lazio's Antonio Candreva did better than him.
It is still a big issue whether the team we are watching in this season is still the one that conquered the two past Italian leagues. But one thing is sure, despite all his current achievements, Carlitos Tévez's best is yet to come.
