Carlos Tevez has experienced quite a few derby matches in Europe, having donned both the red and blue jerseys of Manchester, as well as the stripes of Juventus. But, this past Saturday, he participated in possibly the craziest derbies of his career back home in Argentina, that too in an off-season match.
River Plate came out on top thanks to a penalty that Tevez conceded after blocking a free kick with his arm in the 17th minute. But it wasn’t a straightforward game with players being sent off left and right for dangerous tackles, insulting the referee and even headbutting the Argentine striker. In total, the match involved 40 fouls, 9 yellow cards and 5 red cards.
