We present to you our list of top ten currently active players with the number 10 written on the back of their jerseys, sorted based on their last season’s performances.
10. Carlos Tevez – Boca Juniors
Argentine forward Carlos Tevez has been one of the most important players for Juventus last season as he played an all-round role in the Old Lady’s path to the Champions League final and in securing the local double as the 31-year-old scored a total of 20 goals and gave 9 assists in 29 appearances for the club.
However, ‘El Apache’ has now moved to his home country Argentina where he currently plays for Boca Juniors. His departure from the club was mainly due to him feeling homesick and it left a lot of Italian fans sad, given the fact that the forward is still a world class player playing in the Argentinian league.
