Carlos Alberto Martinez Tévez, best known as Carlos Tévez, is one of the best Argentinian football players today.
He was born in Buenos Aires, specifically, in Fuerte Apache, the most dangerous neighborhood in the City.
When he was 10 months old, his body was burned when some boiling water fell on his body making him a big scar.
He still has it.
He started his career playing in All Boys, but he made his professional debut in Boca Juniors in 2001 at the age of 17. In that club, he won a lot of titles, a Libertadores Cup, a Sudamerican Cup, and an Intercontinental cup.
The fans of the club really love him, and they have called him Apache since 2001.
