Argentina striker Carlos Tevez has described his spell in the Chinese Super League as “holiday” period for him.
Tevez who joined Shanghai Shenhua in December 2016, returned to Argentine giants and boyhood club Boca Juniors this month.
This is his third spell at Boca Juniors, having played for them from 2001 to 2004 and 2015 to 2016.
