Former Manchester City and United striker Tevez hospitalised with chest pains

Former Argentina striker Carlos Tevez has been hospitalised with chest pains, although his club Independiente say initial tests have shown little cause for alarm.

Tevez, who took over as coach of Independiente in August 2023, was taken to hospital in the Buenos Aires suburb of San Isidro after feeling unwell.

A club statement read: “Our coach, Carlos Tevez, entered the La Trinidad Sanatorium in San Isidro with chest pain. They carried out the corresponding studies and they were satisfactory.

“Tomorrow they will continue with a series of exams scheduled in advance as part of a general check-up that is usually carried out.”

A second statement followed up by stating: “Carlos Tevez will be hospitalised as a precaution until the corresponding studies are completed.”

Tevez, 40, enjoyed a glittering playing career with spells at Boca Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Shanghai Shenhua. He won 76 caps for Argentina.
