CRESPO BACKS TEVEZ
Former Inter Milan and Argentina striker Hernan Crespo has said that his compatriot Carlos Tevez will be a success at Juventus in the coming season. The striker moved to Turin in a £ 10 million deal during the summer.
He is expected to be a first-team regular at Juventus especially given that they were searching for a quality striker for a long time. Despite the lack of a well-known strikeforce, the club managed to win the last two league titles. They are now targeting at least the semi-final place in the Champions league. The club also signed Fernando Llorente, who also comes with a big reputation for scoring goals.
Crespo is regarded as one of the finest foreign talents to have thrived in the Italian league. He represented the likes of Inter Milan and also Chelsea before retiring recently. The striker has praised his compatriot Tevez by acknowledging the number of qualities he possesses like hard working nature and the ability to score goals.
Crespo scored more than 150 goals in the Italian league during his stellar career. He also thinks that Juventus have enough strength in depth now to be able to talent of both domestic and European front.
Crespo has also said that Tevez enjoys a great reputation back his homeland.
"Carlos is a real champion, a top player outside of the area. It will be interesting to see how Conte manages him. They are two real winners. When I saw Carlos four months ago, he had become much more mature and calm than before. Tevez has joined a strong team. Juventus are sitting in pole position for the Scudetto and can also go far in the Champions League with a bit of luck. He has what it takes to open up difficult games," said the former Chelsea and Inter striker.
