Tevez sets sights on Champions League glory with Juventus

Winning the UEFA Champions League is the target for Juventus, claims Carlos Tevez.

The Argentine forward completed a £10million move to the Bianconeri earlier this summer, as he entered the final 12 months of his Manchester City contract. This brought an end to his seven-year stint in the Premier League, which also took in West Ham United and Manchester City.

Tevez was the inspiration behind the Hammers survival in the top-flight in 2007, whilst he helped City end their long trophy-drought with success in the FA Cup and Premier League. And during his time at Old Trafford, he won two league titles and the Champions League.

Speaking after he scored the final goal in the 4-0 Supercoppa Italia win over Lazio on Sunday, the 29-year-old has told tuttosport of his desire to become a European champion once more. But of more immediate importance is the quest for a third successive Serie A title.

“We have to remain focused and prepare well for the start of the championship,” said Tevez ahead of the first game of the season at Sampdoria. “Our first objective here is to win the Scudetto so that we can enter the history books. Then we can think about something else. The dream is to win the Champions League and we’ll look to do all that we can to make that happen.”
