After a four year dry spell Boca Jrs managed to once again lift the Argentine league championship with a one-nil win over Tigre at home at the Bombonera stadium. “I’ve won many titles but none compare to this,” admitted club idol Carlos Tevez after the match.
“Sometimes we didn’t know how to play the games but I believe that we had the hunger that makes you win when everything else is missing,” said Tevez who turned down many offers from European clubs in order to retire at his boyhood club.
Teammate Fernando Gago had no doubts Boca was the best team of the championship. “Without a doubt we were the best, this is demonstrated by the points we made,” the hardworking midfielder said. “This (win) is very important for me. I lived through a very bad injury. It’s been a long time since I had won a league championship over here.”
Gago and Tevez will both get a chance to add more silverware to the ‘Xeneizes’ coffers as the club also reached the Argentine Cup final. The match against Rosario Central is scheduled for the 4th of November.
